Description

This [was] rarely climbed, probably due to its mixed nature. Natural gear [was] required along the top crack.

Eds. Per Aaron Glasenapp: this route has gone through a few phases. It was first climbed on gear sans bolts, certainly the boldest style considering the sparse placements on a limestone face climb. 4 bolts were later added making this a largely ignored, still runout mixed route with some not-so-great fall potential.

It is now fully bolted with new stainless glue-ins, has a couple of engaging cruxes (11a) and a nice 10 foot crack for good measure. At the top of the crack, you have the option to trend right and finish on the last 2 bolts of Gen X ation, or trend left and finish on the last bolt of Starving Hippies.

Puking Yuppies makes a good companion to the popular Gen X ation and a good precursor to the more sustained Starving Hippies. Climbing all 3 of these routes in a day makes a good session of 5.11 sport climbing. 

Location

It is the middle route on the buttress to the left of Flesh Tuxedo.

Protection

Originally: 4 bolts and gear (1/2 to 1 inch) to the anchors.

Eds. Now it is 9 or 10 bolts, depending on how you finish, plus 2 quickdraws for the anchor. 4 bolts were added to this route with permission from the FA (Richard Aschert) and approval from the Pike's Peak Climbers Alliance. Therefore, this route no longer merits a PG-13 rating.
