The longest and arguably the best route at South Park, You Bastards shares two bolts with They Killed Kenny before venturing right across a low angle ledge. Pull a series of overhung blocks to complete the first crux and be rewarded with a ledge that allows for full recovery. Continue on easier ground for a few bolts until a nearly featureless headwall is encountered. After ninety feet of climbing it is time for the second and harder crux. Delicately balance your way through nothingness before a final ledge and the last few bolts. Upon completion of this massive journey you are lowered in a jungle of small trees.


You Bastards shares two bolts with You Killed Kenny before trending right. To the left is Conjoined Twin Myslexia; to the right is Mr Hanky The Christmas Poo, Indirect. There is a large fallen tree 10 feet back from the wall nearby.


16 bolts to chains.

Note this route is 105ft. If you are using a 60m rope be sure to tie a knot at the end and be careful when lowering.

Trying to get this route dialed in. I may be completely wrong but near the same height as the they killed kenny chains, does this route swing left to follow the angled slopers or am I off route?

It has been two years but that sounds right. I recall a high crux that involves tenuous moves to the left of the bolts. I don't remember the specific sequence; just a vague recollection.

You are only off route if you climbed way way off of the bolt line. This route setter tends to plumb line the bolts. If I am in doubt I will TR the section I avoided which generally gives me a good idea if I cheated myself or it is contrived to the point of being silly.

Well said EFR. If I am comfortable with the fall, it's on route.

This is a boss route. It's got every kind of move and style you could ask for. It's crazy to hit the second crux after 80 feet of powerful, technical l climbing and look up to see like four more bolts! I can see myself redpointing lots of harder climbs (by grade) on Lemmon before this one goes down. Maybe next year...
