Description

A solid climb for the grade, Cookie Puss climbs up the thin black streak dead center of Olympic Wall. Stick clip the first bolt and get established on the starting jug. Make a big right-hand move to get started. Get used to this type of move, because there's plenty more to come! Sustained climbing leads to a stopper crux move above the 3rd bolt, and it's not completely over until you clip the 5th bolt and get established on the very welcomed rest ledge at 2/3rds height. Hang on through the final 5.10+ laybacking and jamming up a flake system and you will be rewarded with a send of this testpiece!

Location

This is the bolted line directly in the center of Olympic Wall that follows the thin black streak.

Protection

7 bolts; chain anchor.

Per Alvaro Arnal: consider a single biner for the crux clip.

I've been on this route a few times over the summer, and I have to say don't let the rock quality keep you off this route. I haven't found any bad rock along the climbing route; the rock is actually quite good compared to a lot of Pass routes and on par with other routes on Olympic Wall. My only qualm on this route is that the bolt that protects the end of the crux is in a horrible location; a quickdraw hanging from this bolt completely covers the crimp that you're throwing for at the crux. Unless you're long enough to bypass this crimp, then you either have to remove this quickdraw after each burn or simply clip a single carabiner to the bolt and clip your rope into that. Aug 12, 2013

This has a really cool crux move on this. Unfortunately the rock is pretty bad. If it was climbed more and cleaned up, it would be classic for sure. Jun 19, 2013
