Oh my God this route is awesome! For those of you who failed (or failed to take) anatomy class, a sphincter is a a circular muscle, that normally maintains constriction of a natural body passage or orifice and which relaxes as required by normal physiological functioning. There are over 50 different sphincters in the human body...and yes, there is one in your butthole.

BOULDERY! This climb has a wonderfully hard, extremely overhanging start which requires the climber to correctly place at least one or two fingers in a oddly deep pocket, that yes...(sigh)...does resemble a sphincter.

After that, it's jugs, jugs and more jugs to the top of the climb. Get on this thing! It's awesome and proctologist approved!


From left to right, its the 5th route on the Word Up Wall. If you are walking deeper (snicker) into Big Picture Gully and have just passed the Big Picture Wall, you will literally run into this climb. You can't miss it. Don't keep walking past it! Get on it and work this sucker!


7 bolts. Open Shut anchors. And for the love of God, stick clip the first AND second bolt if you're a newb. We don't want to hear about your proctologist visiting you in the emergency room.
