About 25 feet to the left of Tits Up and Hot Beach, there is a menacing OW/chimney in a dihedral. The second route to the right of the dihedral is Super Suka.

Super Suka looks like a slab, but is a bit steeper than it appears from the ground. The crux section actually is pretty slabby, and consists of a very thin crux at about the midway point. A monster no-hands rest comes before the finish. Definitely take advantage of the rest, since the finish is steep, pumpy, and hard to read.

A good route, but certainly not as classic as its neighboring routes.


10 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.


Crazy story for me to share from last weekend...My partner Brandi started up the route after I tried it. I had started in the corner to the left of the first bolt. It was a little sketchy, so I suggested that she try the easy looking ramp to the right. She got her feet up about 10 feet to the ledge that you clip from. As she fully stood up, she pulled on a small but solid looking crimp and it exploded! She clawed at the wall searching for purchase for what seemed like an eternity. I screamed NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, thinking I was about to witness a broken ankle. She launched backwards off the wall falling back first...and....I caught her. She was all set for some serious pain and I plucked her right out of the sky. We looked at each other and laughed. She had some nasty flappers, but other than that, just fine. She's tough. She pried off another loose, off-route hold higher on the route. Watch out for the choss on this one. Nevermind, she got it all. Jun 13, 2009

Thank her for cleaning up the loose stuff. Its a pretty clean route now. Apr 5, 2010

It could have been that my beta was a bit off...but I felt that this was harder to send than Hot Beach. I thought the technical crux was demanding and the boulder crux at the top clocked in around V3/4. I thought around soft 12b or solid 12a. If everyone's consensus is 12b for Hot Beach, then I think 12b. Jan 26, 2015

Great route and agreed with the original classic status from some of the earlier guidebooks. My only knock would be that the bolting was a bit contrived. I think the original line was intended to go straight up the bolts, but the obvious least path of resistance is to the right of the bolts. A hard sequence in the middle and a not so easy to read finish keep the route interesting. The stone is beautiful. A good one for sure.... Feb 16, 2015

I honestly think this route is not giving the rights it deserves, I think this to be a classic route, it has a little bit of everything. Loved this route! The crux is definitely thin, I mean real, real thin - as thin as you should be if you wish to cruise this route. Dec 13, 2015

Are you supposed to climb directly up the bolt line? The superthin part at midway felt super hard for 12a. There was an obvious weakness a few feet to the right. Nov 4, 2018
