Start just left of Mr. Clean at the base of a thin R-facing corner.

Fifteen feet of easy climbing gains a point where the wall obviously steepens. Reach out left, around the corner, to place a 1.5" cam with a long sling, the only bomber pro before the crux. A really good red alien can be placed in a shallow slot in the left wall of the dihedral, but getting this placement with standard-width cams would be difficult.

Technical stemming and lieback moves (crux) gain a roof at mid-height. Turn this on the left and cruise up easier ground to an excellent hand crack finish.


Brush Hog is located immediately left of Mr. Clean and both routes can be toproped from the same anchors.


Rack: medium/large stoppers and cams to 3"
