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.

There is a tree at the base of the routes to the right. Start at this tree and traverse left on the slabs to the bolt. Climb the right crack to its end and belay on a big ledge with horizontal placements for an anchor. When your second gets up there, go check out the Window up and left of your belay ledge. Huge bathtubs abound on this rock.

Descend with a one-rope rappel off a two-bolt anchor located 20 feet to climber's right of the route, landing at the tree where you started.

Skip the traverse and head strait for the crack . Jun 27, 2005
these are more like 5.6, though the calderone guide downrated both to 5.5. 5.6 seems about them to any other city 5.7's (Columbian Crack, Wheat thin, Adolescent Homosapien) and I think you might agree, they are a touch easier. Fun routes!!!! Jul 4, 2005
still disagree. getting to the bolt is cake, definately easier than the moves at the bolt. solid 5.6!! Jul 5, 2005

This climb makes for great crack climbing practice. I agree with Jason, just go straight for the crack. Simple route straight up following the crack. We even used this route and good times for some mono on mono racing actions since both of these routes are almost identical and only about 6 or 8 feet apart. It was pure pleasure. Jul 18, 2008

This is mostly a face climb on positive holds; the crack provides excellent pro possibilities. Outstanding climb! One of the best 5.6 routes I've ever done. Oct 23, 2011

Did this again on the 4th of July. The length of the climb is almost exactly 100 feet, or half of a 60 meter rope. Always fun. Jul 6, 2012
