Further up canyon but still on the left side is a bulging, overhung wall with many features. This is on the right side of the wall and climbs a featured face with several bolts. Although the climbing is easier than the rest of the route, it is somewhat difficult to reach the first bolt and a fall could prove very injurious; therefore use caution, natural gear or a stick clip. The rest of the route is challenging and fun face climbing on good rock.


Beneath the aforementioned bolted face is a corner with a crack. Sucker Punch leaves the crack when the first bolt can be reached. Short people will find clipping the bolt to be problematic.


7+ bolts, plus a bolted anchor. Consider bringing a piece of gear to protect clipping the first bolt (finger sized through #1 Camalot size) although this doesn't provide a perfect solution.
