A bouldery crux, utilizing a section of dike, starts things off, after which fairly mellow climbing leads to a sloping ledge below a headwall. A bit of stemming gains the headwall, which is rife with incut edges.

  • Named for the annual Whiskeroo contest, held in Running Springs during it's Mountain Top Days festival.


Located on the right side of the wall between Panning for Gold and Reach for the Sky.


5 bolts, chain anchors

The start moves are kinda fun, the middle is so so and the top is a bit bouldery, but straight forward. If you're looking for a 10d, do Coyotes in the hen house or Mighty Quinn 10c that's right around the corner.
