Two cruxes, one OW at the bottom, and another at the top. Classic
Not often led, but bring the big gear or TR via bolts

Randy Leavitt did the bottom portion of this route and (believe it or not) fell at the upper part. Running out of daylight, he bailed it. Soon thereafter Cameron finished it up getting the FA.

So badddddddd. Mother Superior has got a gun...
Can't wait to get back to Woodson, my core was way too weak to send last time I was on MS.

The left branch of MS goes at 5.11b. True Story: Back in the early 80's I saw a guy highball this variation drunk at sundown almost in the dark! I have no idea who this wrap around glasses character was!

A fantastic exercise in bad sizes. The start is ridiculously steep if you can't get kneelocks and stacks (I had to armbar with sloppy thigh locks). Enough variations in size and angle to make it pretty technical getting through the transitions between techniques.

Man this route looks awesome. Can't wait to try this once I get to San Diego. By the way I am moving to San Diego from Boulder in a few weeks to work on the new gym Mesa Rim and I have never been to San Diego. Where is a good place to meet other climbers/best gym for both bouldering and routes?

I thought this was absolutely CLASSIC stacking. Definitely one of my favorite offwidths ever!
