Start low on the good incut hold then toehook and finesse your way to the enormous crux move to a good finger bucket on the lip, then top out. The reach at the end is pretty big and at this time, the climb has yet to see a complete ascent. Not sure on the rating yet. Quality.


This route is in the "Whiskeytown" area at Balsam, east of the 'ShooFly/NoGirth boulder about 200 yards on the ridgeline. The large boulder has a couple very esthetic lines on it including 'AncientAge', another route that may go right from the low start hold, and a complete traverse from right to left, ending on Ancient. The east side of the boulder has a climb in the V2-V3 range titled 'Sour Mash'. The smaller boulder to the west of the big one has the climb '100 Poof'.

Treat the land with respect.
Take all of your personal stuff and trash with you when you leave.
Keep a low profile and have fun.


Bouldering pad, spotters, common sense.


Climb was done years ago, as with many others in the area. Never named, fun line. Nov 15, 2013
