In the center of the east face on Window Rock are a series of perfect hand cracks that don't quite make it to the ground. Look for a bolt below the start of two of these cracks. The left crack is Good Times, and the right crack is Pure Pleasure. Both are 5.7, and both are enjoyable. You should do these as well. Drunken Climber is the crack to the right of these.
There is a tree at the base of the route. Start at this tree and head up into the crack above you to its end. Belay on a big ledge with horizontal placements for an anchor.
Descend with a one-rope rappel off a two-bolt anchor located 5 feet to climber's right of the route, landing at the tree where you started.
Note: I don't know what this route is historically called, but ``Drunken Climber'' is what we have always called it. If you know more about this route, please speak up!

I really enjoyed this climb. Crux at the beggining and then easier the closer you got to the top. Crack climbing mixed with a little face climbing. Great little route.

I've also heard this route called "Drunken Cowboy."

Is this a crack that's un-named in the Bingham guide, just r. of PP? Thanks for the info!

This route is not mentioned in the 7th edition of the Bingham guidebook. It is the next crack directly right from Pure Pleasure. The start may be reached by a short scramble, and avoids the slightly runout start of the 2 preceding routes. The pro possibilities are excellent all the way!

This is much better than Good Times in my opinion. Definitely worth the effort. A bit of smearing/slab moves at top if I remember correctly.
