Gus after Warm Busch Beer ascent.


It is the large flake that starts about 15 feet above the trail and directly to the left of Porkus Procurement. The flake forms a nice, hand-sized crack that curves right toward the top. Pull over the top of the flake, and you are at bolted anchors (for Porkus).

We climbed this on 10-12-15; does anyone know of any previous ascents of this route?


At The Dark Side at Shelf Road, it is immediately to the left of Porkus Procurement and two routes left of Enchanted Porkfist.


Bring hand-sized cams. It ends at bolted anchors for Porkus Procurement.

This was a fun route! I'm surprised there's not more activity/documentation around it. I felt it was significantly easier than 5.9 though (much easier than Lumina a few lines over, albeit a very different style), and you can lead it with a very light rack, or TR it from Porkus. Anyway, thanks for adding the route!
