Sit start on Pinky and the Brain. (Off Route)


Not sure who climbed here first but credit to Hank Rankin for making this one known and naming it. It's a sit start on some tough crimpers that moves up and to the right. You get out from under the slight overhang onto some slippery crimpers on the top side (the brain part). Foot work is important to get out and over. The crux is probably down low but the crimpers on top are tough too.


Look in the "brainiest" part. The sit start is chalked up pretty good right now but it starts to the left of the pine tree that is close to the rock as you face it.


Pad would be good but watch out for the pine tree.

This is one of the most obvious and semi-worthwhile problems at Juliette. I climbed it circa 2005 and thought it was V2 (+1 for full-on 95/95 mid-GA heat/humidity). Since then I suppose the inflation rate has dimished the value of the V.

SF, got any more info about this route or any others? I didn't find this place till 2006. There's not much to it but here and Hitchiti is about it for trying to stay in shape in Macon. I wish I had more info on FAs, grades, or route names just to give credit where it's due. Thanks.

No info really... I just explored around by myself a few times and climbed the more obvious and aesthetic lines. Folks have been going back there for many years, so it is safe to assume that anything worth "claiming" was sent long ago. It is easy to feel like a mega-FA'ist at a place like this because it sees little traffic and few repeat visits. Sorry for the wise ass grade remarks, but I am using Rocktown or the like as a benchmark. There is no shame in calling Veasy "Veasy", especially if it is fun!
