Prepare to get spanked!

Another 5.11c built for pleasure, pain and pure humiliation. 

Located on a unique tower of rock detached from the main cliff. This ass-bruising route starts on a low angle slab, gets vertical and gets funky when the climber comes into contact with a huge pocket formation. Moving past this mondo-pocket requires skill, stamina and a well-worn thinking cap. You can go left or right to escape the pocket but either way presents its own challenges. After that, this route is no picnic with every other move to the anchors presenting a potential beat down.


Farthest left route in The Crossroads area.


Take 10 quickdraws.
