ha ha, third time is not a charm...once again, climbed it as a last minute thought with Frank who wanted to see it....and yet again my memory failed me, I went right at the end up the fragile rock (5.10a)...face climbing to the left of the steep closed corner, placing horizontal small gear in suspect rock up to the cactus. Don't know if I said it before, but I do this in 3 pitches, not 4 and rap it in three raps via a 70m rope. Last rap requires a short down climb to avoid bushes.
Joanne and Jorge told me they named this after a drink back in the day...I vaguely think I remember the ads as a kid. With Jim from Boulder. First two pitches are fun..2nd two not so much. It has been six years since I first did this route, but wanted to go right again on the last pitch as I was taxing my memory, (did not have my sp page with me) into the corner, but a huge cactus awaits up above. Keep left after the singular bolt.
My first route with David (guide from Gunks)....I am sure we will have many more together, fun dude, good times. Cold, cloudy and windy day, but we stuck it out for 2 routes, 6 pitches. Did Hot Fudge Thursday the next day. Good Patriot fan as well, so plenty to talk about.
