This is yet another great Mural Wall route. Not as classic as The Mural or Monet, but with the boulder problem start, the difficult climbing is a bit longer.

This is the farthest right of the routes on the Mural Wall. Begin with a boulder problem involving a thin move to a large hole. A decent rest can be had before launching onto the steeper, blanker part of the wall. Sustained pockets and edges lead to some juggy pockets below a final bulge. Tricky back and forth climbing gets you through the bulge and to the anchors.


8 bolts to an anchor.

I disagree with the comment "Not as classic as Monet or The Mural" - even if this is the consensus. Motif is an exceptional route with 3 distinct cruxes: the boulder problem start, the thin middle crux, and the sequential upper crux offer brilliant climbing! The first 2 cruxes are harder than the upper crux, but take your rest before firing up to the ledge!

I enjoyed this more than Monet and The Mural. Good clipping holds/stances and great crux sequences. Note that I do no like monos, which exist on Monet and The Mural but not Motif.
