The punisher

Mount Charleston Wilderness Area MORE INFO >>>


Nice climbing on blocky edges and jugs. Thought provoking and will give a slight pump. Good route to run laps on.


This route is located to the right of the route with red hangers; it is the 4th route from the left.


8 bolts and anchors

Really fun route, slightly scary as mentioned previously. Might have been put up on rappel.

This route is awesome, not scary at all. It's classic even with the 4th bolt being a little right.

Two drop-in anchors at the top. Route is pretty solid, although there were a few clips that I stayed a bit to the left of, in agreement with Joe. A bit pumpy towards the end when trying to get over the roof, rest up and aim quite a bit left of the anchor, and you'll be able to find some better grips over there.

Suggest naming this the Punisher or Lefty because it punishes the forearms or because it really wears on the left arm.

Consulted with Tom Robson and Mike Moore, who agreed that "The Punisher" is an appropriate name for this route. Thanks to Tom & Mike, and my climbing buddy Jeremy, and all the others who supported this name change. Special thanks to whoever did the FA and put up this route--good work!
