Huong works out a tricky sequence on Mercy Miss Pe...

Description 

Somewhere between OK and just bad...
It depends on how wet it has been lately and if anyone has recently climbed it. Or perhaps it has cleaned up with time? If not, then climb up past a line of bolts on increasingly dirty rock.


Location 

From the left branch of the approach trail you first encounter the "triplet" climbs,Sunshine, Moonbeam, and Into the Light. Pass these and Decay's Way (a short crack just past them) and then a Chimney (Top Ropers Route) One more bolted line (Stay Left) and then this one, the last line of bolts on this side of a huge inset.


Protection 

4 bolts to a bolt-and-chain anchor.

It's not really too dirty anymore... but it still sucks. The moves just aren't fun.

Maybe not the best for the grade at Military, but it has its good points and it wasn't dirty when I led it. I think it deserves better than a bomb rating.
