This route starts on some
The snow was deep this past winter. This is in July 08 at the Booty Wall. . The 2nd bolt can seem high, just remember those jugs are good! Keep you footwork together and sequence to make the slipmer moves to a rest. Shuffle along the shelf going left, at the end are some wild sculpted chickenheads. Climb up and right using more memorable chickenheads to the anchor. WILD!

The Booty Wall topo with Diff'rent Strokes area showing .


The route starts at the top of the hill (which often is full of Thistle). Find a flat spot kicked in the hill for the belay.




Overhanging granite jug hauling is an uncommon thing in the Wasatch. Oct 13, 2008
Bump to get more people on this one. Grab the sloper and chuck! Jul 4, 2012

Got a sweet handjam and high feet and skipped the sloper. Awesome pitch, slightly shitty belay. No loose rock anywhere on the route. Jul 26, 2012

I spent at least a good 10 minutes trying to figure out how to skip the sloper; Daniel, you must have a wingspan matching LeBron's. A really good route; kudos to the FA. Aug 15, 2012

As others mentioned, If you're around 6' or have a decent ape index you can reach all the way to the jug from the hand jam, thus skipping the sloper. In other words, the difficulty of this climb is very much height dependent. Also, the route does not start at the top of the hill (as stated in the description). It starts 20-30 down from the top. The rust colored streak is the easiest marker. Aug 10, 2013

This is an excellent route! Very cool rock the second half.

Do your second a favor if they're weaker, and unclip/pull out the first and second QDs/bolts after the crux so they don't get pulled over into the nothingness if they fall. Sep 10, 2016

I was not a fan of the 6th (crux) bolt placement. Get ready to play the game JUST OUT OF REACH, when you are at the hand jam and wishing that bolt was placed 10" to right of where it is now. Seemed a little contrived to force someone to launch into the crux sequence with the bolt at their feet, when the obvious clipping stance was the hand jam. That being said, trust that it is a jug you are going for, and hope you stick the move. The fall doesn't feel so great when you miss it. Jun 10, 2018
Hahaha!!! As my dear friend M. Tea once told me..”short people got no business”. Sounds like you got short roped to me fella. Obvious clipping stance is a hand jam? Maybe a cam would do you better than dumb bolting? Glad you liked the route... Jun 10, 2018
