Description 

Yer Anus is wonderful on a summer day. hahaha.
The jokes just never get old for me.
"What did you get on today?"
"I got on Yer Anus".
"Hahahahaha".

Besides the jokes, the climb is good too. If done right, it can be a cruise, but it can challenge you as well.
You start up the easy corner and break right below the roof to good holds and make a trick move to a ledge. From this nice rest move right on good holds and bad feet under another roof and over in to a corner climb the corner and mantel to gain the chains.



Location 

The second route you get to as you walk in. To the left of One Size Fits All (5.11b).


Protection 

5 bolts to anchor.

This name leads to numerous jokes...

"Yer anus was a little dirty today"

I could go forever but I don't want to bring down the quality of this site...

Yer Anus was very slick with the humidity today.

:-)

A fun climb with a good variety of moves.

I did Yer Anus one time. It was a fun little experiment but I don't think I will try it again.

I have done this climb twice (second time I meant to get on Space but missed my mark). Both times, I thought it was quite damp and slick.
I agree with Otey's comment.
Three stars, Lee? Really??

I hear you, Lee. in this matter, everyone is FULLY entitled to their own opinion and should be free to express it.
I am just trying to guard myself against "star inflation". I just wish it is 0 to 5 stars because I have realized that there are many climbs that I like to give 1.5, 2.5, and 3.5 stars to when 4 stars is the max.
I think you have already figured out that I rarely give any climb 4 stars but I admit to have a strong preference for NRG and RRG sport routes. I blame it on having bad fingers to bear down on those sharp Rumney holds. :)
