Molson's Madness back in October 1988. It's the cl...

Description 

I think the crux is about 3/4 of the way across though it is pretty sustained. Originally done with pins, they were stolen AT LEAST 3 times. Now bolted. Kinda strenno but probably the easiest route in the cave.

Location 

Right side of the cave- up and left baby !

Protection 

bolts, fixed anchor

5 bolts 2 pins. Crux is between 4-5 bolts. The roof seeps after a few days of sustained rain and soaks bolts 3-5. Also makes for a good intro bolt ladder for aspiring aid climbers. It's a good alternative to the first pitch of Cathedral direct. From the pin anchor there are a couple rivets that lead to the cathedral direct crack system out the roof.
