Oh Pogo Punk. So nice I climbed it twice. Much nicer than the 5.9 variation, Go Pogo.
I recommend for the bold and brave, the left most route on the pinnacle at the end of Melting Mud Wall. Starts up a mildly chossy but fine slab up beautifully marbled limestone (which then turns to shit-ugly limestone, and then back again to a spotless white stone at the top) where you then pick pockets and stand on blocks to the creative, weight shifty, trust testing, vertical ascent. A variety of holds and technique make this route a blast, if you can keep your head together. Think light and hope for low gravity on some of the upper holds! Exhilarating send. Oct 17, 2017
