Description 

Rocksuckers is definitely one of the better bolted face climbs on the Tower. It ascends the rounded, blank arete to the left of Hollywood and Vine, ending at the same anchors. The climbing is sustained on small sidepulls and crimps, with a few good rests to break it up. Runouts exist between a few bolts, but the hardest moves are all protected.


Location 

Start at the anchor on the block after climbing Roach Addiction or the Hollywood and Vine chimney.


Protection 

11 bolts to the anchor.

Sorry Dingus. My ego must let the cat out of the bag.
