Like Thomas Hobbes said, "nasty, brutish, and short". Pump out right on imaginary smears, then power up the lieback to wobbly jams to top out.


Obvious roof around the corner from Mexican Crack on the West-facing side. Undercling right then lieback straight up.


TCUs to hand size for the finish.

Interesting description, Dave. I was climbing with Bobby that day and he spotted it, had me belay him and he powered right through. He was a powerhouse....I couldn't even get off the ground! He is still climbing hard! I got to name it Rotert's Rooter, though! He first suggested the name Wanna Beer Hangover, as he was suffering from one, but still he was so strong back in the day, he barely hesitated at the crux. He did need to root around for the right size Friend for a moment, so the name seems appropriate. Nov 11, 2007
