DescriptionOne of the underdogs of Big Picture Gully, this stellar climb is often overlooked because of its funky location and the fact that everyone wants to prove they can onsight or redpoint Everything's Big in Texas. DO THIS ROUTE! It has its own special character that can't be found in most Spearfish Canyon routes of this grade.
"Oh sure, a 5.10c that's mostly slab, this should be a cake walk." WRONG! This waitress happens to be a bitch, and if you don't give her the proper respect (and a good tip...of your shoes) the only thing that she'll be handing you is your ass between two slices of rye.
The route starts with a wild set of bouldery moves that will have even the finest of diners wanting the check before desert is served. When the main course comes, better stay on your toes because the slab and arete sections get funky and wears on your arms in ways you can't possibly imagine. The crux is towards the end as a series of thought proking moves begs the question, "how can something that looked so easy from the ground get so hard at the last bolt?"
This is a climb that you can sink your teeth into, even if you can't get your hands and feet to stay where you need them to be.
