A solid squat/stand start on fractured limestone, the problem goes left to the arete of the formation. Fractures at frequent intervals in both horizontal and vertical runs make for lots of options for placement, along with some nice jugs....all lead to a clean top out and walk off in either direction...pause up top to absorb some more beta.
It is a fun, little, vertical wall problem of roughly 15-18 feet in height. All three (3) of the problems on Potty Breaks start off on Stinky Fingers.
A spotter and a pad are a good idea as the landing is sloping to the creek. Snakes abound in the area, and the critters living in the rock account for the namesake of the route.
Routt County Road 82, Forest Service Road 116 follows Slater Creek.
The best problems can be found near the intersection of Slater and Adams Creeks. The crag sticks out like a sore thumb as you reach the area, it is north of the road & creek and south of Shield Mountain. There are many possible routes to access Routt County Road 82 (due consider conditions and winter closures).
Located near the confluence of the creeks, it is a dominate point.
It is on the north side of the road...park wherever you would like along side the road...skip, hop, and jump over the creek to reach the crag.
Pad and or a spotter...the landing is on a slight slope that is loose, talus type rock.
