Description

A beautiful, jagged hand crack splits the face and eats up pro, giving Guzzler its name. This is a popular moderate lead, so be ready to stand in line if you don't get there early.

Follow the vertical crack up the wall to a short roof also split by a crack. Climb directly up through the overhang on hand jams and reachy holds, or play it safe by moving left to easier moves over the roof.

Location

Starts 15' left of Somalian Hunger.

Protection

Nuts and cams up to 2"; anchor status unknown.

There is a rock to sling up top, but be sure to back it up. Dec 30, 2010

vimeo.com/18377601 here is a sweet vid of the guzzler we did for the need shred need crack series.. munkel gets a shred fix on his mtb before sinking perfect jams up the guzzler.. guzzle guzzle May 8, 2012
I loved this route personally. Bomber placements, a tough ending, the works. Be very skeptical of the tree at the top, although it does seem solid. I backed it up with the other tree behind it. Mar 17, 2013

Very fun route. Done on TR but practiced placing gear, the name Guzzler is fitting. Nov 25, 2014

the crux of the route is probably avoiding the spiders.. I was solo aiding guzzle and practicing my top stepping. I put my hand in the crack on the roof and a massive spider crawled onto my arm and I fell. That was the biggest spider I've ever seen.. Aug 21, 2015
