this is a poor route for those that are too week to climb overhangs

Nice slab route, crux in the middle involves powerful crimp moves.

people only dislike this route because it takes technique. as well as they are little wussy beyatchs. come off your overhang and lets see those feet skate.

it has 5 bolts, not 4

I got spit off this route more time than I can count. I found the crux very thin... is there such thing as a sloping crimper? (cause that's what I was pulling off)

What's up with military wall attracting gym rats? Possum lips is stellar good crimpy climbing. I loved it you'll love it too.

Thin technical moves requiring good foot technique. I did it just after coming off a broken hand...not much crimp strength required.

A great route. Good foot technique is a must. Patience is rewarded on this route.

Captain, are you talking about goin' for the jug at bolt 4? If so, get your feet right, reach high, and skip all that nonsense.
Brentucky said on July 20th, 2008
i found no way to skip all the "nonsense," but thank God for that jug! this climb is very fun and a bit of a thinker for the techy less-than-vert lovers.

I stayed on the right side after the first bolt. Do real slab-masters stay towards the left on this route?

What is so bad about this route? It was fun as hell.

Sweet technical route. Did it first in 2001 without the power for steep overhangs. Did it again last summer after training for power, but lacking great slab technique. I love this route.
swj said on July 10th, 2011
A nice break after working on the overhung routes next to it. Reminded me that the little slab technique I do have is good for something after all.

This route is sick. If you like routes that require more than gorilla arms, get on this route.

Anchor currently has only one bolt with chain / rap ring. There is a newer-looking empty bolt hole at the anchor, as well as two older-looking sleeves. Fun route!
Willy said on February 20th, 2014
Added a new second anchor bolt today
DrRockso said on March 24th, 2020
Anchor looks great, the protection bolts are past need of replacing.
