UpperCut, 5.12a


The Mortal Kombat of Spearfish Canyon limestone climbing. THIS ROUTE IS BEYOND SICK!

DO THE DIRECT START! Sidepull and layback into a dihedral. Defeat your adversary by sticking your left foot just right. Launch a hand up and into a huge, slot pocket and gain altitude with attitude!

The upper bolts on this route have been stripped in order to make the climbing a bit less Raiden and a lot more Johnny Cage. No more needless crimps! The new route design makes the final moves a lot less contrived since climbers are now forced to head left into crack holds shared with The Roof. VERY ENJOYABLE!


Left side of the TKO wall between The Roof and TKO. 3rd climb from the left.


You'll need at least 10 quickdraws and the ability to survive a beat down right at the very beginning.

Shares closed anchors with The Roof.
