A "strong" one star, this route is quite enjoyable. It is also one of the easier and better-protected routes on Combat Rock. It finishes with the nice hand crack on P2 of Nuclear Polka if you don't want to do the scary first pitch of that route.

Identify the long large roof, about half a ropelength up, on the climber's right side of Combat. A thin, clean LF corner drops from the right end of it (Nuclear Polka); Monkey Lust is the next crack to the right. Pitch one climbs the crack/corner to a belay on the upper slab. Pitch two diagonals up left 20 feet across the slab to a striking hand crack. Above, climb easier rock to the summit, and descend to the east, 3rd class. Nothing harder than moderate 5.9 is encountered.


Bring gear from a #4 stopper to a 3.5 Friend.
