Don't listen to the crooked media, this route is the greatest variation EVER! While this does allow this section of the wall to be climbed at a pretty sustained yet moderate grade, the first two pitches need the swamp drained a little bit.

P1. The inception of this route should be obvious from the presence of the biggest crowds, 30 feet left of the arete that lies to the left of the inset of Woke Up Punk. Follow a dihedral system that meets the arete around 130 feet up. Belay here below a blank wall. Like a good press secretary, the correct line is a little hard to pin down, 5.10-.

P2. Drain the swamp pitch. Make a bigly step right from the belay into a dihedral on the right side of the arete. Follow this for 20 feet. A spicey step back left around the arete will deposit you on a ledge. Just left of the arete, a thin crack gains easier ground, 5.10.

P3. Russian Interference. The exact line of this pitch is somewhat unknown and accesses Ledge Mara Lago by loosely following the arete. At Ledge Mara Lago, belay about 30 feet left of the crux pitch of Woke Up Punk, 5.6.

P4. The "Grab her by the pussy" pitch. Head straight up nice steep cracks, past a peg band, through some bush, up a steep dihedral and onto a ledge where one can escape further humiliation by traversing straight right to belay at the top of the crux pitch of Woke Up Punk.

P5-8. Follow Woke Up Punk.

The first three pitches follow the large arete left of Woke Up Punk.

Not a huge fan of the political drama going on right now, but I couldn't help myself from cracking up with this one. This route description deserves at least 5 Bigly stars. Jun 23, 2017
