Description

In the center of the east face on Window Rock are a series of perfect hand cracks that don't quite make it to the ground. Look for a bolt below the start of two of these cracks. The left crack is Good Times, and the right crack is Pure Pleasure. Both are 5.7, and both are enjoyable. You should do these as well. Drunken Climber is the crack to the right of these.

There is a tree at the base of the route. Start at this tree and head up into the crack above you to its end. Belay on a big ledge with horizontal placements for an anchor.

Descend with a one-rope rappel off a two-bolt anchor located 5 feet to climber's right of the route, landing at the tree where you started.

Note: I don't know what this route is historically called, but ``Drunken Climber'' is what we have always called it. If you know more about this route, please speak up!

First climbed this years ago with Wake Williams. We called it Anchor Direct, since that is where the crack leads. Unprotected move to crack is easier than getting to the first bolt on the two 5.6 climbs to the left. No need to build an anchor, just belay off the chain anchor/rap station at top of the crack. Last two moves are a little thin. Jul 1, 2015

Theres also another crack, about 5 ft to the right of this one. Also unnamed, and worth doing if you are in the area. Probably goes at ~5.6. You can see it in both the beta pics. Mar 16, 2015

This is much better than Good Times in my opinion. Definitely worth the effort. A bit of smearing/slab moves at top if I remember correctly. Jul 23, 2012
This route is not mentioned in the 7th edition of the Bingham guidebook. It is the next crack directly right from Pure Pleasure. The start may be reached by a short scramble, and avoids the slightly runout start of the 2 preceding routes. The pro possibilities are excellent all the way! Jan 22, 2012
Is this a crack that's un-named in the Bingham guide, just r. of PP? Thanks for the info! Nov 8, 2011
I've also heard this route called "Drunken Cowboy." Oct 25, 2011

I really enjoyed this climb. Crux at the beggining and then easier the closer you got to the top. Crack climbing mixed with a little face climbing. Great little route. Jul 18, 2008
