Steve on Mugre Mugre. Bomber rock, fun climbing.

Mugre Mugre 

Mugre Mugre starts at the bottom of a large flake two routes to the right of Don Quixote in the Virgin Canyon. The guidebook calls is R because the first bolt is about 20(ish) feet off the ground -- but there are solid moves and big holds to the first bolt.

Climb strait up the large flake on good laybacks and small feet. Towards the top make a big move right and follow the bolts up and right to a two bolt anchor.

Originally the route went up and left and at least one bolt can lead you astray

Nice Lay backs, side pulls and face climbing!! Very fun and the retro bolting takes away form the R factor for most of the climb. The beginning and end will however get your blood pumping with some slightly longer run outs! A Few variations can be done with this route and the Bass guidebook can be slightly confusing on describing this area.

8 bolts total which includes the "new" lower bolt. Nicely protected with cool flake. Anchor is off-set fixe bolts & rings.

Don't follow the route line in Dane's book; go straight up/slightly right instead of up the unprotected ramp on the left. Retro bolting made for a much better lead. There's one spinner towards the top, but 8 bolts + 2 bolt anchor excluding the spinner.
