Wade Forrest on Mulva

Dan Schwarz photo


This route is super fun and one of the better "scoop routes" in a place known for them. Stemming though the second scoop is wild!

Up and right on a short slab, then straight up through the first scoop, then up and left through the second scoop (crux) to a chain anchor.


A short walk downstream on the East Wall to where the creek narrows and hugs the right wall. Located just a bit down-stream of Aqua-Vulva.


Bolts & bolted anchor.

Actually it is the left one. Manny and I climbed the right one (Aqua-Vulva) a while back thinking it was Mulva, and I only recently found out otherwise.

Someone told me this climb was called "Scoop Nazi". Maybe an old/new name? Awesome route regardless.

Andrew the Scoop Nazi is located up stream, and starts atop the small pillar of Swamp Thing & Om on the Range.

Mulva has been one of my favorite sport routes at the WW for years now. I love the "scoopness". You never know what to expect on the onsight, and it always incorporates a wide variety of movement.

Another LaFarge classic!

For whatever it's worth I lowered the anchor on this route one bolt. It keeps you from having to finish on the last 8 feet of sand.
