Great flake, and a stout 5.7 grade. On the bottom of the South Tower, find a crack to the R. of a small pinnacle. One pitch up to some questionable fixed pins, and then downclimb the gully to the R. There is a second pitch that requires aid I believe.
Cams in the 0.5-2" range, wired stoppers, and some larger hexes.
Luke on the thin hands crack at the start.
Luke in the crux upper corner.

Great route! One of those pitches, like Star Wars, that you wish was about 30 feet longer. Sustained and thoughtful. Once again, watch out for the poison ivy....and the trains!
As a side-note, regarding the trains, Pete Cogan has a great way of accessing MM Wall. His email can be found in the Climbing Boulder Community page.

Route is short, and although not bad, there are certainly much better climbs in the area.
Pro was available, but not great- a little complex as I recall.
Probably a little bit of a sandbag too.

I thought this first pitch of Shiva's Dance was very good and am surprised that I had never climbed it, and perhaps never even noticed it. There is a two bolt anchor at the top for rapping. You can toprope The Offset (hard and thin and sketchy gear) from there.
