A few moves into the pumpfest that is Vomit Launch
Seasonal Raptor Closure 2012 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A classic 5.11 pump-a-thon. A stick-clip is often used to clip the first bolt to protect the insecure and overhanging first moves. The climbing is steep and consistent with a crux coming in the middle, but the pump will send many climbers for a ride near the top.

Vomit Launch is just to the left of the Cocaine Crack on the right wall in the Cocaine Gully, and starts under the small roof.


Protection 

9 bolts and a bolted anchor

Did this route long ago (fall 1987) and remember it be high quality and pumpy for the grade. An excellent route and a very memorable name!

I preface this by saying that I am a Vegas local, and that I was at Smith during the crazy heat streak this summer (over 100*), but this route, while CLASSIC... seemed harder than 5.11b to me, even by Smith standards.

So good! There is a direct variant that should be tried on TR or after stick cliping. Great dyno from a right hand two finger pocket to the cliping jug just to the left of the first bolt. Does not add anything to the grade, just fun for those that like dynos.

Personally, I found that the last few feet of climbing after you've become established in the crack were the crux of the route. Nice place for a crux, though! Excellent climb, certainly my favorite 11 in the park.

Great fun. Purely a physical fitness route without any single hard move standing out.
