Location: Colorado : Canon City : Shelf Road : Cactus Cliff : Tits Up (5.12b)

Comments: Afterburner starts just left of "Tits Up" and crosses left of Muscle Beach. It should be added to the database: 12b, two stars. Very different from Tits Up, though. It is more sustained and obvious, whereas Tits Up's crux is mysterious and puzzling.

Comments: Finding the traverses left on pitch two and three can be quite a problem here is some help: after pitch two you will see the red slings out right (and up) and another set of slings to your left (and up) do not get sucked into the cracks that lead nicely up to the slings out left, rather stay low, pull over the arete from the dihedral you'd start in and go right, unprotected for 10 ft or so and then hit a horizontal crack that leads easily to the slings and the horn

Comments: Unbelievably bad. Waste of time, and hangers, for that matter. Kinda lures the unwary into a bad place.

But hey. It's a free country still.....right?

Maybe it's "all good, bra."

Comments: Tried climbing it on Sunday (7-4-04). We had the wrong route though. We were to the left of it. Much harder than Osiris. My friend said it was probably a 5.9

Comments: I was up at Irok lately and the (12+) "Kick Their Ass" had written in chalk 11-, is this the rating?

Comments: Since this route is so short, I didn't feel like this climb deserved a 5.12 rating. The juggy two finger pocket out left is an amazing hold!

Comments: Is this really suppose to be 5.12 climbing? The cobble that was pulled out left a sick dish which was a blast if you got it like a side/pull gaston, but the crux was not sustained at all.... I feel a 5.12 climb should have more than 1 or 2 tough moves. In Rock Climbing Colorado though, it says it goes at 5.12b (was that before the cobble gave?). If so, has anyone climbed this route without that existing cobble? Anyone? Feel free to disagree.

Comments: Should this be listed as out of mind expeierence instead of out of body experience?

Comments: What is the route to the right of Johnson route? the one the crosses the overhang after it drops off? What is the pitch above Johnson route rated? I did it today, and it was very fun.
