Description

The namesake route for this little cliff, although you could make the argument that this cliff is really part of the Briskets area...but I digress.

Anyway, this route is a decent route although nothing too exciting. No difficult moves and a couple of sort of odd clips - worth doing if you are there but certainly nothing to seek out.

Follows a crack to a face in a shallow open book. For a better "bolted crack" climb, go do More Funky than Gunky, not far away.

Location

center of the Happy Wheel wall, fairly soon after coming up the trail that comes out at Addiction wall if you walk toward Killer Cave.

Protection

5-6 bolts to anchors

Fun, if a bit awkward... climb up crack, traverse right to clip, back to crack, traverse right, repeat until face climbing.

Watch out for wasps nesting in the crack at the bottom! May 29, 2009

This route is more enjoyable (and difficult) if you leave the crack/corner early and stick to the bolt line. Aug 17, 2010
