Description 

Climb the slab left of science friction, past 9 bolts, with an easy runout to the anchors. Name came from the melanoma knobs you encounter on the route. Less bolts, than the overgraded, over bolted other routes on the sunshine slab. Fun, clean, well protected slabbing..rare for arches.


Protection 

9 bolts, to a two bolt anchor. Double rope rap.
