Description

This fun route ascends a blunt arete. Start just left of the arete, move up and right to the arete, then up to chains.

Location

Located at the Left Flank. Climb starts on the right side of the slabby face, about 20' right of Face Up To The Crack. To reach Left Flank, take 77 East through the Nada Tunnel, then 1 more mile East to the Martin's Fork trailhead on the left. Cross the street and take the Military Wall/Left Flank trailhead, then bear left at the Y.

Protection

Well bolted plus chains.

Early in the life of this climb there was a common rumor (?true?) that the name was in part a pun intended to poke fun at the original bolt placements, which were not ideal for a beginning climber to clip. Nov 28, 2006

If you're not a new leader I woudn't waste too much time on this. If you want to do a 5.8, just look to your left, that one is much better. Apr 21, 2008

It's not that bad, it is actually pretty fun. A nice long route with some slopers, and even a fun little roof move near the top. Soft for the grade, probably a 5.7. Jan 18, 2010

I agree that this could be a 5.7. It is fun though. I climbed it three times in a row just because, and once barefoot. Apr 9, 2012

Great Climb! Really fun and easy lead, on of my favorites at Left Flank for sure! Nice views also and it stays in the sun all day. Apr 14, 2012

Its super fun, full of jugs and worth doing if you are at Left Flank. However it is not 5.8. I would concede to some people saying 5.7, but 5.6 jug haul for me. Mar 27, 2016
Probably named for the Mike Patton side project. Some Primus songs at this crag too. Aug 10, 2018
