Description

Sets you off on a mission to battle a bulge right at the very beginning. Get pumped real early from cranking on big to interesting holds right after the first bolt. A tenuous rest at the second bolt gets you psyched for the steep stuff that follows. Enjoy a Tour de Force of big pockets, nice-sized ledges and small holds that are so cool they become fun to use after a few moments of suspense. Be sure to stay left at the second to last bolt.

AWESOME GOOD FUN! If Yippie-Kiy-Yay is being hogged by hoards of hangdoggers get on this sweet little ride and get warmed up for the harder climbs that make up the large swath of wall to the right.

Location

Use Trail #2 and get there faster. Hike to The Lady in Red Wall where Yippie-Kiy-Yah is located and turn left. Keep walking the easy traverse trail until it gets suddenly steep by a thin birch tree. Crest the hill and traverse onto a ledge to the right. Find a small cave on the ground with a chain bolted inside of it. If you hiked up Trail #1 The Assassin Wall is the first wall you will encounter after walking past The Gully of Biblical Proportions. You will see The Joker first and Buckshot Booya is just down the hill and to the right of the big black slab of The Joker.

Protection

Bring 8 Quickdraws. Shares anchors with The Joker. Stick clip first bolt if this is your first rodeo.

The belay is wonderful but on a precarious ledge. Belayers should feel free to secure themselves at the base by clipping into a cold shut.
