Leaving the giant hueco on Mona Lisa Overdrive


Mona Lisa Overdrive is a popular option despite a difficult and potentially dangerous start. The moves leaving the ground are not too bad, but a perplexing sequence of slopers just below the second bolt often results in exciting air time. The moves aren't particularly hard, but there is a lot of stray chalk marking pitiful holds. After a good rest in the hueco, the difficulty eases with relentless jugs lead up the steepening wall to the anchor.


This is the second bolted route from the left on the main wall.


6 bolts to 2BA. Stick clip at least the first bolt. Its a good idea to atleast hang the second draw with the stick. If its your first time on this and you are neat your limit, recommend stick clipping the 2nd bolt.

imho, this route is pumpier, but technically easier than green horn. really good route.

Fun route. A bit of pump throughout and a sequence that can add some air time in the beginning. Be sure to milk the hueco rest because there is not much after when going for the shuts.
