Whiskey Drunk is the first route right of the arete that forms the entrance to the Sweat Lodge. It shares the first two bolts of the arete route. It follows a crack up a very steep wall, coming in from the right. You end up chimneying to the anchor at the top of the climb.

The route starts on long pulls between positive pockets and edges. There is a crux move pulling into the start of the crack. You next make strenuous lay back moves up the crack, eventually getting to a stem as you approach a huge chock stone on your left. The anchor is not visible from the ground as it is almost on top of the giant flake. The top is a bit run out, but if you are capable of climbing the bottom, it is not very hard.


bolts, 8 or so

The final jug after the layback/crack section is really crumbly and loose, FYI. Oct 15, 2017
