A crumbly start leads to better rock above, with a fun exit. Like many new routes in the Alabama Hills, be aware of loose holds and friable rock until the route sees more traffic.


Located on the west face of Munge Dome.

Descent: Rappel from Mussy Hooks at the top.

At about the same time this went in, we top roped the thin crack left of Choss Whisperer, calling it "Probably go, natural pro" 5.9 (no stars) and it had much looseness. We didn't think it was worth pursuing beyond a TR burn.

There is also a 'backside route' off a block that is relatively short. 5.5. Not worth doing. Only mentioned here in case someone desperately wanted to TR Choss Whisperer they could solo this line up and set up the TR.
