Very nice climb and a must-do on the wide circuit. A #6 Friend could be useful in the bottom half, otherwise hand to off-fist pieces. This, and its companion piece Jumar of Flesh are right next to each other at the highest part of the west side of the Foundry. Name came from an old Coors can wedged in the upper part of the crack. Anchor takes #3.5 to #4 camalot and/or 3/4" to 1". Scramble off climber's right.

It is all coming back to me now... If you notice in the pics, Billy Russell is facing right side in. This is the correct way to do the route. I am facing left side in, since a naysayer at the base bet me a six pack that I could not do the route wrong side in... glug glug glug... that beer sure was good!
