Mosaic ascends the blocky, grainy face just to the right of Cosmosis. Start on a short, light-colored slab at ground level, and head up, tending a little to the right, along the path of least resistance.
I'm not much of a fan of this route -- I think Apparition Rock in general is a crappy choss-pile -- but my buddy really liked some of the pumpy moves down low and didn't seem to mind that every time he tried to get a smear with his feet the rock crumbled out from underneath him. So I'll compromise and give this route one star.

I agree with Brian - kind of a chossy route, although the lower half is okay. Maybe a half star.

New route on the far far left side of Mosaic wall in Indian Cove The Liver Is Evil and must Be Punished (either 5.10+ or 5.9+)....left start is the hard start and has 2 more bolts.... right start comes in from the right and has 2 bolts.... bring slings to tie off 2 knobs.........shortish approach, and something you haven't done in Indian Cove....

Worth a lap while in the area. Too bad that generally means another walk-off which is somewhat of a hassle from this formation.
