|Motherlode Rock - West Face
Start about 10' down and left of Mighty Quinn and climb varied face past a dihedral before moving slightly right and exiting onto the exposed headwall the climb finishes on. The crux is near the end, and while possible to climb directly over the bolt line, most opt to climb a slightly easier line just right of the bolts.
The rock is a little scrappy down low, but the variety of moves, exposure and overall length combine to make this a recommended route for the grade.
Left side of the West Face between Highgrader and Mighty Quinn.
7 bolts, sport anchor
