This fun route ascends a blunt arete. Start just left of the arete, move up and right to the arete, then up to chains.
Located at the Left Flank. Climb starts on the right side of the slabby face, about 20' right of Face Up To The Crack. To reach Left Flank, take 77 East through the Nada Tunnel, then 1 more mile East to the Martin's Fork trailhead on the left. Cross the street and take the Military Wall/Left Flank trailhead, then bear left at the Y.
Well bolted plus chains.

Early in the life of this climb there was a common rumor (?true?) that the name was in part a pun intended to poke fun at the original bolt placements, which were not ideal for a beginning climber to clip.

If you're not a new leader I woudn't waste too much time on this. If you want to do a 5.8, just look to your left, that one is much better.

It's not that bad, it is actually pretty fun. A nice long route with some slopers, and even a fun little roof move near the top. Soft for the grade, probably a 5.7.

I agree that this could be a 5.7. It is fun though. I climbed it three times in a row just because, and once barefoot.

Great Climb! Really fun and easy lead, on of my favorites at Left Flank for sure! Nice views also and it stays in the sun all day.
