Great climb! Start off with sandy/ ramping small hands/fingers. Hit the clean finger splitter, which is just past vertical, fire to the anchors. Pinches down at the top.


Left about 200 feet from Cupped Hands around the corner and past the detached block. Up obvious, slightly overhanging splitter.


Finger sizes.

I think it's actually just *%*&ing hard. Dec 27, 2010
I was with Andy Petefish when he worked on and did this project in 1989. He told me he didn't have enough #0 TCUs or big enough testicles to continue upward and was unwilling to put his fingers in an acid bath to slim down the digits for a few more feet. There you have it!
Nice wall!
At my age now, I enjoy the loop from Mushroom Rock (Monument Canyon) via Lassoing the Shaky Steel Otto Pipes, a brief stop at Otto's Bath Tub, and then a quick descent down the Otto Carved Ladder (similar to the Ute Canyon/Liberty Cap Otto Staircase) in back of Gold Star Canyon from where this route is. Good job with the other climbs there.
Probably still a super nice four pitch route to be done there deeper in Gold Star Canyon that look like Lightning Bolt on North Six Shooter.
Have Fun!
