BETA PHOTO: start inside jugs.


On the North (maintence road) side of the northmost Magoo, there is a rightward overhanging sloper lieback. This route requires 8 feet of overhung sustained movements that are quite taxing.

You can't miss this route from the road, as it's probably the first thing that you will notice when looking at the Magoos if you're headed either there or to Castle Rock and you look left.

This is route 2 on Avery's pretty picture.


Bring a crashpad, or three.

Is this the same thing as Unnamed V1?

Not quite. Overhanging lieback starts on the arete and continues on the arete; sustained climbing. The unknown V1 starts on the jugs and uses the arete; much easier. Hope this helps.
