This route gets you hammered real quick and keeps you staggering around in what becomes a full keg's worth of climbing in just four bolts.

Once you're onboard this route, the pockets start to resemble shots. You'll take down the tequila two-finger and proceede to the three fingers of scotch to insecure feet that lead to a mudslide pocket. Reach hard for the Peppermint Schnapps pinch to a beer bong of a bucket hold that needs to be matched so you can get another Pina Colada crimp-like hold. Now you get to clip the first bolt and move to the second round.

Get those feet up to the bar again! Order up a huge leap of a lager to a fishbowl of a hold. Turn that sucker into a Schlitz of a sidepull! Start setting up your feet in order to grab a crimpy cocktail! Heel-hook that huge fishbowl jug and stagger onto the next bolt!

But this party is just getting started! I don't know what the hell you do to get past the third bolt. But it might as well be a keg stand. Remember to crimp to clip! And keep that pinky out, we are civilized drunks here!

The rest of the climb is a porter/Pinot Grigio pinch/sidepull to big holds to an undercling-like flake thing that you can get finger locks in. The last moves involve running over to the rail, and HURLING... yourself to the anchors.

POWERFUL! PUMPY! SEQUENTIAL, GYMNASTIC and FANTASTIC! This party ain't over till you're passed out on the deck! Get on this funky thang and drink it all in again and again, you gluttons for punishment!


Belly of the Booze Wall which happens to be the left-most crag at The Danks. This kick-ass little crag can easily be located by parking at The Danks parking lot and hiking up the first trail located right across the highway. Look for a large boulder in the ditch and hike on the left side of the boulder and walk up the short slope. Turn left at The Hangover Wall and walk up a short, steep section. This hike is less than 5 minutes.

If you decided to hike up the original main trail that leads to the wall that contains Mary Jane and The Roach, turn left and keep walking past the Half-Baked Wall, The Party Wall and The Hangover Wall.

Booze Cruize is the funnest, freakin' 50 feet in the entire canyon and just happens to be the 4th route from the left-hand side of The Booze Wall.


Four bolts and a well trained liver.
