Caunt drilling on the first ascent


Technical, thin, off-vertical face climbing on good quality rock.


Located to the right (downstream) of Drill Sergeant (5.8 crack/dihedral) and Corporal Clinger in the center of a sweet varnished face. Continue to the anchors at the top of the formation. Rap on shuts.


8 Bolts and shuts.

Not one of my best route names. Called it this because I came down with bronchitis during a winter trip to Mammoth and felt like crap the entire time. But managed to do some climbing as well as skiing. Hacked and spit the whole time.
