Comments: according to Toula's guide, the obvious short hand/fist crack in the black streak right of center might be "A Fine Line" - 5.9, and another one right of it may be "The Depths" - 5.8 (possibly the left-facing dihedral). I have not confirmed this yet.

Comments: rather amazing with clever sequences at a manageable grade especially compared to the other Cwm-Corners. The step off the belay over space is pretty exciting as well as the bomber hand crack and exposed finger crack with JUGS! Volunteer's version of Loose Lips, but better ;)

Comments: the free-hanging rapline at the top of this pic may give an indication of how steep it is up there...

Comments: My son's name, Gavin, and Arthurian Gawain, happens to be derived from the Welsh name "Gwalchgwyn" meaning "White Hawk".

Comments: I am naming this one "White Hawk" and the one just to the right "Green Knight". Both share the same belay ledge.

Comments: Nice work, Matt. When Dave and I did that thing, we used a screamer on that sucker, and the thud sound it made when you fell on it was not very inspiring, even after popping a few stiches. The consequences if that pin blew would not have been pretty, and yeah you're right one of the best for true Clear Creek aficionados. Combine this with the 100 Proof/MB circuit for an ultimate linkup!

Comments: This is the old topo for these routes when they used to start from the Ashtray. See Garrett's Revenge for an updated topo.

Comments: now there is Mulligan 2! "Mulligan Pie" now rides the arete a little bit longer and finishes to the top of the headwall and anchors of Pie in the Sky!

Comments: I've been wanting to add these final ingredients for quite a while. Originally I left Mulligan Stew as a gear route having only a couple of bolts. Eventually I added enough bolts to make it a clip-up. Now, this most recent upgrade practically doubles the climbing fun and adds two more cruxes, separated by great rests, all at a difficulty of maybe an extra letter grade or two. Bon Appetit!

Comments: if youre into this sort of thing, it is fairly easy to hang the last three draws after lowering from Southern Exposure and reaching around the corner!

Comments: dont limit the rodeo clip for the first clip! as a last resort to get through an impasse, with some ambition you can rodeo mid route.. clip in direct and go for it.
