Moving through the crux on Cocktail Sauce


From the satrt of Perfectly Chicken, climb the overhanging wall just right of the arete using a shallow two finger pocket. Gain the good incut out right and finish on good patina


NW corner of the Smooth Shrimp/Buttocks boulder. Just uphill from The Mandala and just below Saigon


One pad will do just fine

The Most recent guide gives "cocktail Sauce" V10 and zero stars. However, it may be the softest ten on the Eastside. Lets be honest if that problem is V10 then Bubba Gump which goes at v10 also should be upgraded to v12. If your 5'10" or taller its more like v7 if your shorter maybe v8. Don't mean to hurt any egos here but lets be honest.
Fun movement nonetheless considering its squeeze between two very worthwhile problems.

I dunno man. V8 is a bit light and I'm not tall enough to even bother with the V7 thing. I think V9 is fair and have changed the rating to reflect that.
