DescriptionGreat JT adventure climbing on an obvious line leads to a very nice summit. A handful of 5.8 moves at the start are followed by engaging jug hauling.
A thoughtless person could probably tear most of the holds/route off and leave it all at the base so be careful!
Start at a left slanting thin crack behind a boulder, hand traverse left on jugs to huge hollow plates end on a large ledge and gear belay using 2" cams or sling plates (5.8+ ~70 feet).
Above follow giant steep holds up to a fine thin hands crack leading to the summit and gear belay with 2-3" cams (5.7+ ~70 feet).
Enjoy the view.
LocationSouthwest face of Punk Rock is this obvious line we have all looked up at while heading to Mental Physics.
An arduous boulder scrambling approach directly from the main trail below the rock leads to the climb's start.
Descent is a short exposed 4th class off the northeast corner of the summit block. Fun 3rd class scrambling northwest toward Lenticular Dome will lead you back to the route's start.
