super fun route, ive climbed all the routes on the...

Closes at dusk, and most parking areas are self-paid MORE INFO >>>


Fourth route from the left on the scale wall.Climb up the slab using huge jugs with good feet. This climb is stretchy enough where it will be a good warmup, and a good excercise for someone who hasn't climbed outdoors before.

The route is a bit runout for a 5.8, but the crux is protected and near the top.


4 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

Fun route with giant holds. I would call this a gym 5.8.

I like to call this route the "Booger Route" for the boogery type holds on the wall.

About half way on the crack/arĂȘte on this route is a loose flake. Be careful on the holds.

super fun, very much like a gym climb with really cool holds. I would only give it a 5.7 outdoors tho. I really like the sick slimy looking holds on it. also a super clean lead. could be a first outdoor lead for and 5.8 gym climber

The first and third bolts have been cut. I brought up some nuts to protect but placement was not bomber. Was confident in not falling so I continued on.

I was there two weeks ago or so and some of the hangers were definitely moving, I don't know about sketchy though. I'm pretty sure someone removed the hangers, possibly because they were sketch (I don't know how to judge that stuff).

M&M is 17 years old and I would guess to be the most climbed route in Auburn. I've replaced the hangers on that route 3 times. I replaced almost every hanger on the Scale Wall and the Memorial out of pocket except for a few donated ACA hangers. Sorry guys, this crap needs to start being picked up by the climbing community.

If a hanger spins, it's because it needs tightened. It's not sketchy, it's not "dangerous" unless the hanger is near the end of the stud or away from contact with the wall. Hand tighten it down, let someone with a wrench go up and tighten snug.

You shouldn't yank the hanger. The same thing has happened several times at Auburn because people new to climbing don't have a basic understanding of the mechanics of bolts and climbing in general out of the gym. LEAVE IT FOR SOMEONE WHO DOES!

Given it is the 1st and 3rd bolts, my bet is on ignorance, not theft.
