Dr. Frost making his way up Ka-Pow!


How do you "warm-up" for a fight to the death with a crazed evil villian from a Bruce Lee movie? The answer is, "you either knock them out first, or you find yourself knocking on Heaven's door." Welcome to Ka-Pow! This intimidating intermediate sets the bar for opening moves. A combination of superhero strength, ninja skills and sheer luck and determination will get you through the starting crux and into ten plus rounds of pocket pulling and nail-biting crimps. This climb is the comic book bad guy that just won't lie down and die. Looking for an onsight? Look somewhere else, rookie. A big, dynamic move at the very beggining is gonna put that old guy's voice in the back of your mind screaming, "You ain't got what it takes, Rocky! Go back to hauling spit."


Ka-Pow is on a rounded buttress in the middle of this crag where even experienced mountain goats even fear to tread. Do yourself a favor and stick clip the first bolt since its a LONG way to the bottom. This route gets morning shade and afternoon sun.


Bring about ten quick draws and enjoy the open anchors if you finally get there.
