Russian Jenga butt shot. October 2013


Crunchy, scorched rock on the lower half of this shorty mars this little thin hands splitter. Still, it climbs alright and adds to the Capulin 5.10s list.
A few paces left of Tips Up. A finger crack leads to a small block that looks like it should come out but feels surprisingly solid. Above the block it's thin hands to hands to a hidden anchor just over the lip to the right.
If you're curious about the name, take a look up above from the anchor.


About five feet left of Tips Up. It seems reasonable one could access the anchors of Tips Up from this route to setup a TR on Tips Up.


0.4 camalot or nut protects moves to block. 0.5 to #2 camalots above.
