A face climb going straight up the center of Chimney Buttress's large roof. Subdue the roof with a tricky sequence, continue up on slightly easier terrain.


Begins about 15 feet right of the route Roofs.


Standard Blue Mounds toprope

Pronounced Poi-Ka-(Finnish for boy) this route might be more aptly named "Dirty Little Poika" due to the amount of lichen found on the upper section of the climb above the roof. Don't let this deter you though last weekend this climb was cleaned up and sent by four different climbers. We all agreed that this was a very sequential and challenging climb and definitely worth a try if you find yourself at blue mounds looking for a challenge. May 31, 2016

Another excellent and often overlooked route at Blue Mounds. Due to low traffic the section above the roof can be dirty and lichen covered. If you don't care about an onsight you may want to rappel and clean. Poika means "little boy" in Swedish. Oct 26, 2006
