Description

Poke-O is known for many aspects of climbing, but one in particular stands out for many climbers: Technical (read: Off-vertical) face climbing.

This route adds a more direct start to Cirrhosis, AND a full number grade of difficulty harder.

7 bolts protect the anchors and the end to a very thin and breath-taking route up a sheer, black face.

Start by mantling onto a shelf, then continue up the wall passing the crux at about 2/3 height. There are several spots along the climb where the climber will be making somewhat tenuous moves above bolts. So come armed with your vertical dancing shoes, and be sure to keep your wits together for this tremendous affair of the steep.

Location

Locate the Thunderhead roof at the far right end of the cliff. Menace To Sobriety is the blank, black face to right with a line of bolts up it.

Protection

7 bolts and a two bolt anchor.
