A smaller section of wall with a central defining dihedral -- More Funky than Gunky (5.9), with a few other good lines on the nearby stone. These include Camel Jockey (13), Childs Play (10c), and the nearby Put Down Your Ducky (5.8). This line is to the right between the main Camel Jockey wall and the left side of the Killer Cave. The Camel Jockey Wall gets morning sun, and the dihedral starts to get shade in the afternoon as the sun moves around the corner.

Getting There 

This small wall is located 50m or so to the left of the last Killer Cave routes, such as Elmo's Fish. From Addiction traveling right, one would pass White Heat Wall and Briskets before reaching Camel Jockey.

More Funky Than Gunky 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  WY : Sinks Canyon : Camel Jockey
A great dihedral line. The true sport climber might feel as though the line is closer to 9+, but if you have any crack technique you will be constantly debating: Do I pull on the pockets or pull on solid jams and locks? Climb the right leaning dihedral on solid lock, until it fades into a small roof just before the chains. The crux of the roof is getting your feet over the lip, and as is often the case flexibility is one your best assets here. Hold onto the jugs and clip the chains....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
