Not the best topo of Ugly Stick, but enough to hel...
This climb was bolted generously, because it is long, steep, and a little bit rotten; hence the name.
This lies to the right of Winter Warmer.
You'll need a 70 meter rope and 16 draws to reach the triple Winch Hook anchors (clip & go convenience). Ring anchors have also been installed on the ledge 12 meters up, after the first two bolts, to accommodate parties with shorter ropes.

Fun route and maybe the longest at Table. Bring your 70m rope and watch out for loose rock up high.

Awesome route, and definitely a little long. The more traffic this route sees the better, since it will clear up any remaining loose pieces. Some of the rocks look a little loose, but are actually pretty solid. Fun and LONG route. Would like to lead this next time I am on it.

Well done! Interesting climb bottom to top. About two thirds up is where the business started for me. The character of the rock changes, and you have to pull over a weird bulge. Bottom crack was excellent as well. The burliest moves are in the crack, but you are still fresh then. Belay from the anchors and have your second trail a rope up if you do not have a 70m rope. Still some loose stuff to be cleaned, but it's not too bad.
Edit 11/24/2007: Managed to "clean" a bowling bowl off this on lead. There are still some rotten sections, so be vigilant.

It's cleaned up well, so go climb it. It's a worthy route and proof that size really does matter....and that there is more to climb higher up on N Table. Thx, Kirk.

Kirk - I met you up at Table about 2 months ago, and you told me about this climb. I will be doing it this week, and I just wanted to thank you for your thoughtful work.

This is a fun route. Nice to get airy for once at table. Pretty clean considering the length.

The route was great. Definitely interesting at the top. I think it was you, Mark R and your significant others that were doing Stick It To The Man today. Able and your other dog kept my dog entertained today. Thanks for putting up such a good route.

Great route. Still pebbles coming off and I made a big mistake pushing off on a dark block about sixty feet off. Moved quite a bit. Should have looked around more. It's right before the first bulge. I was lucky it didn't go. My mistake. Be careful.

The loose block and associated loose rock have been removed. Thanks for the heads up, Dave.

Loooooong. Every foot of my Blue Water 70. No move harder than about 10 minus but just relentlessly at the grade and then overhung at the end. Sheesh! What a blast. The endurance factor bumps the grade, not the moves.
