Description

Shittin Bricks is one of the tallest 5.11d/ 5.12a routes at the Forks and is a full value adventure. Start off on a thankfully short chossy band of sandstone. Work the tight finger jams, positive small edges, gastons, and some burly stemming to reach easier though physical climbing. Smaller than average fingers might be an advantage on this one.

The rest of the route is really fun and varied with all sorts of different crack styles. Although the grade backs off it certainly keeps after you to the top! A long, tenuous classic if you are looking for such.

This is also a good one to save for a strong onsight attempt as the gear is good and straightforward.

Location

Around the corner from the Prow, past Yardarm and all that. It kind of just appears with not too much else around it.

Protection

Though the protection can seem dubious off the start, several good #00 and #0 TCUs will see you through to bigger gear. Then doubles from #.4 through #1 camalots. If your gonna bulk up bring extra medium units. Nothing bigger than a #1 Camalot, aside from an optional #4 at the top. Small/medium wires.
