Jamie Tolins throwing for the bloody finger pocket...


Starts behind the dead tree stump. Climbing above the first set of anchors (45 ft up) is still a bit loose but only like 5.7. Belayer should wear a helmet as this is a brand new route.

There once was a man named Joe,
To a faraway pocket he'd throw,
But when his hand hit the hold,
His skin did a fold,
And left a bloody flapper for Joe.

Now a man named Johnny can't lead,
And a man named Joe can bleed,
But fear not their fate,
Climb with a clean slate,
For an onsight to this route you need.


9 bolts to first mussy hook anchors. An additional 5 bolts to the top set of mussy hook anchors. (Extension option. Not a 2-pitch climb.)

Good route. I'd recommend a toothbrush and pretapong your right index finger. I as well fell victim to the flapper.
