Description

Haven't a clue as to the origin of the route's name, but what the heck, it's fun, requires some interesting--but not mandatory--butt-scumming, and is within tickling-distance to "Mr. Clean", so why not climb it?!

This is the ramp-like crack system that meanders its' way up the cliff just to the left of the "Mr. Clean" corner. Climbing this to a fun high step into, and through, a V-notch. Continue up the low-angle crack system to chain anchors.

Location

10 feet to the left of "Mr. Clean".

Protection

A rack including some small pieces...nothing larger than a yellow Camalot.

According to the Adirondack Rock guide book, the name comes from the name given to a large block precariously perched atop the climb. This block has since been pried off and now lives at the base of the climb. Apr 29, 2009

Doubles in .75 - 1 camalots will help a leader at his limit on this. Really fun movement on this guy for the grade. Crux is a little awkward, definitely some butt-scumming fun. I enjoyed the flake moves up top the most. Apr 1, 2015

I thought this was very thoughtful for the grade. I would not recommend this to a new 5.6 leader. Felt 7ish to me. Jul 4, 2015

Yakapodu further up the cliff felt more 5.6. Awkward climbing especially for new trad leaders and new crack climbers, felt more 5.7. May 28, 2018
Good intro to the crack climbing at this crag. Wonderfully solid rock!
