Description

Kapoopsie is a quality line whose only drawback is that it's short.

Start on the right side of the alcove in the middle of the alcove and climb the crack feature that trends up and right. Where the crack ends climb up the face, encountering the crux at the fourth and final bolt. Staying right, and on the face proper, at the fourth bolt is a little harder but cleaner and better. You can also step left into a large crack for an easier, but dirtier finish.

This is probably the best warmup in the area for those looking for a 5.10 start to their climbing session.

Location

In the middle of the Gecko Wall is a small alcove. Kapoopsie starts on the right side of this alcove, climbing the crack feature that trends up and right.

Protection

4 bolts to anchor.
