"Why so serious?" - followed by that man...


"Why so serious?"

Probably one of the most thought provoking "easy" climbs in Spearfish Canyon. The mind-blowing exposure off a delicate arete is going to make you feel like a pocket pulling Bat-Brain until The Joker pulls his wild card on you before you reach the anchors.

Riddle me this, what is "The Joker Move" you need to pull off in order to get your fleeting onsight? Not gonna tell ya!


The Joker is the tower-like pillar on the very left hand side of the Assassin Wall. It is the last climb you encounter before entering the Gully of Biblical Porportions.


Your utility belt should have about ten quickdraws. This climb has recently had its anchor replaced and now shares that anchor with Buckshot Booya to its right.
