Divesh Bhatt on Call of the Mild.


Bouldery start, meets up with Three Fat Chicks above the first bolt. The crux is about midway, after which the climb eases up. Avoid going too far left onto Vertical Vice territory (tempting, but off route). After the last bolt, traverse to the anchors for Goofed. Somewhat sandy at the top.

  • RCM&W # 105, p 135


Starts in the small dihedral between Vertical Vice and Goofed on Skunkweed.


4/5 bolts and anchors at the top. You may want to sling the drill hole between the first and second bolts.

I find it easier to not use as much of the "crack" at the begining, but use some crimpy face holds and quick moves to the jugs. Be ready for slick foot holds at the second crux.
