The trough and the bottom of the hand crack traver...


One fun face move brings you into a trough below a small roof. Hand jam traverse under the roof with little feet before topping a ledge and finding the anchors.


SE corner of Motorboat rock. Only route east of the Motorboat walk-off.


2 top anchors. BD #2 and #3 protect the crux.

Getting into the trough is tricky but fun. Can you hand-jam? Then the top-traverse is bomber. You can easily set a top-rope for this route.
