Description

Named after a punk band my friend played in. A little of everything with this one. Some route finding, some power, some endurance needed. Somewhat powerful moves getting past the 2nd and 3rd bolts lead to a balancy high step move at the 4th. Technical climbing using bad feet with some slabby moves thrown is required as you move past a few more bolts. A cool move climbing past the 8th bolt and through the bulge leads to a good ledge. The rock type at the last bolt changes to yellow scaly limestone. Climb a single tricky layback move to the anchors.

Location

Just right and 20 ft up the hill from Dillinger. A small dugout flat spot on the hillside marks the start.

Protection

9 bolts with mussy hooks at anchors

It's enjoyable to climb such a clean route at the quarry! Thanks for the effort that went into cleaning it. About as hard as the route to the left as was mentioned above. Would be pretty classic if not for all the awkward moves. Oct 25, 2017

One of the higher-quality climbs at Auburn. Some decidedly burly moves, but nothing to get pumped out on. Some pretty technical movement in a few spots. May 25, 2016

This is another great route and should get more traffic. Well worth the hike up. The rock at the top of the route is unique at the quarry. Very cool. I worked on the belay ledge a bit today so should be a little easier to put your rope and gear down - until the rains wash it out again. Feb 2, 2015
