Cindy @ the crux.

"This is a favorite if you're from South Park, I guess. Start off with a big pull on a big chunk reminiscent of Mr. Hanky, then go up the face on good holds past the crux. Then it is slab climbing to the anchors." Tod Anderson


This is the 4th route from the left on The Left Cheek.


8-9 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

This was a great route. The rock is awesome and has a cool bouldery start, I thought the little head wall at the top held the crux (5th bolt?, sorry long day). This area is gorgeous, great fall day.

Nothing very technical to this one, found it to be easier than the routes on either side. Great start, fun route!

Anyone willing and able to bring some glue to reinforce Mr. Hanky's namesake is encouraged to do so. -Chris Perkins
