Tricky moves for the start, roof and hand crack for the finish. Walk off is a choke stone chimney just right of the climb.


On the left side of the portal looking at the wall. Its the hand crack in the middle of the pillar just left of a choke stone chimney.


Gear to 3 or 4"

If this is describing the crack on the left hand side of the three-sided block at the Portal (the pillar with two bolts on top), then this route was climbed by myself in the early 90's, called "The Whippin' Stick" due to all of the stabby bushes at the bottom, and rated at 5.10.
I have some pictures somewhere, I'll try to find them. Nov 6, 2016

I had burritos for breakfast and there was a bit of an updraft that day...but good name. Fun climb. Aug 9, 2009

I couldn't find a name for the route so I came up with one. While I was climbing this route I noticed that the middle smelled like I was using the soapstone shitter. This is a pretty fun climb if you can block out the smell. There is poop around but can be avoided, the climbing is easy at that point. Jul 24, 2009
