Sort of the younger, less attractive but sporty brother of Countdown To Extinction. Start sitting at the jug of The Warmup, climb right into a fun crux that can be done a number of ways, and finish by topping out Le Privett. Pumpier than it looks.


Start on the left side of the boulder, on the obvious massive jug.

Yeah, I'm a huge Megadeth fan. Particularly the Rust In Peace and Countdown to Extinction albums.

Here's a not-so-incredible piece of footage, filmed on my phone. You can climb this sequence a bunch of different ways, but they all feel the same: hard. Pardon my grunting; aging climbers like myself have to try harder than the all the youngsters.
