4 out of 5 stars yikes

I was frazzled from grabbing a puddle behind a hold and stepping on green moss as I went left; changed my mind and went right. I couldn't figure it out and escaped far right in the gully. My bad. I am not used to wet and slippery rock; hard to find in AZ!

4 out of 5 stars Three variations

Berke's Kitchen can be done three different ways. All go to 3rd bolt then you can move right (5.8) left (5.9 soft) or straight up (5.9 hard) This is one of the first routes at Suicide and definitely a fun one.
