Junk Food Junkie is a strange climb. It is very easy to notice it some 60 feet right of 7-11 burrito.

The entire route is pretty sustained, but the crux is what makes the climb noteworthy. It is near the 3rd bolt, and is a well-protected dihedral/roof section that really doesn't have much on the way of hands.


9 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Bring a sling for the 3rd bolt.

[Hide Comment] I felt there were 2 cruxes to this climb. The first is as mentioned but another was found getting to the last bolt before the anchors. Super fun! Aug 21, 2012
