New Red Wall Route - Dirty Pinkos, 5.9+

Mike Reusse and I completed the climb [Dirty Pinkos] last summer but were hesitant to post until it was cleaned further. I think it is a great adventure route. Similar in rock quality to "Wherever I May Roam" when it was first put up. The crux of the route is on the second pitch. The third pitch is a 120' traverse and goes at 5.8. Leader and follower need to be strong on 5.8. The fourth pitch is slabby 5.5 to a vertical 5.8 move getting off the climb.

Climbers are encouraged to use the 4th pitch and not the gully (erosion will literally kill fellow climbers and tourists). Descend via Misery Ridge Trail.
