Derek, finishing the last crux.


Ascends the steep, very thin face to the right of "Green Banana Jam". Climb on thin edges and thin side-pulls for 25' until you get a good rest, you'll want to throw a cam or two before pulling onto the upper headwall. Continue up through five bolts of amazing but technical face moves.


Easy to locate, just look up. It is the bolted line Right of Banana Jam Crack

Yeah, Derek and Caleb, congrats on getting up this one! Mother Psycho is a tough lead! About 1992 I watched two "elite level" french climbers thrash themselves into exhaustion before they finally got it.

Bob Flaugher and Bill Clinch put this one up in March of 1990. I think Scot Ayers did this one a few months later and gave it an 11+ rating, but I think 12a is closer. At least two stars, and I'd give it three myself.

This was my first 5.12 send, and incidentally first fall on gear back sometime in early 2013. Anyways I remember it being an awesome route, definitely worth doing
Also I vaguely remember the rope almost getting stuck after lowering off it so be careful as I think the anchors ontop of the ledge
