Paige leading Megster.

Description 

Well-protected and casual but fun climbing make Megster a good route for novice leaders. And if it's hot weather, your belayer can bask in the steady stream of cold air coming out of the big crack on the right!

Starting at the base of a right-facing corner, climb the corner to a small roof. Skirt the roof by moving right to a ledge, then continue up to a bench-like block near a tree to finish.

Location 

Located in the Prehistoric Wall section, a short walk down from Booze and Broads. Starts about 10' right of Woolly Man. Rap from the tree.

Protection 

Standard rack -- a selection of small to medium gear. A good-sized tree can be used as part of your anchor.

This route was actually done WAY before 1999. I don't get how these folks think they did it first, but we were already on this route in 1995 and there was an old stuck cam in the upper corner when WE did it. So, it's really FA unknown.
