Suck My Kiss can be climbed as either a single pitch or an alternative opening sport pitch to the traditional opening pitch of Thin Air. It is the first climb around the right of the front-side buttress of Koala Rock and offers a mediocre sport pitch.
Climb up to the first bolt on a block and rock over around the arete to your left before moving up to the second bolt. Not the most comfortable of moves but it is fairly easy and the climbing eases thereafter. The rest of the climbing is up less than vertical rock up to a two bolt anchor. The climb is nothing to write home about and probably only gets traffic based on moderate grade and being a bolted alternative to the Thin Air trad start.
If you are using Suck My Kiss as a bolted starting pitch to link up to the Thin Air multi-pitch climb, continue past the anchors up low-angle rock without any protection. The climbing is pretty easy but just know you need to cover some ground following the line below you until you reach another set of anchors. Keep climbing, you'll find the anchors.
