After climbing the 7 bolts to the right of "Momentary Lapse of Reason", jam your way up the splitter (for Monitor) finger crack (2-3 placements) and then step out right for the 3-bolt crux to the anchor. Steep and challenging!


Temporary Change of Season, 5.10d, starts just right of "Momentary Lapse of Reason". A small tree grows from the wall and separates these 2 routes. Scramble up ledges to the right of Trooper Traverse to gain the base of these pitches. 30' right of the Mother Lode start.


7 bolts to 20' of crack (1/2"-3/4"cams). Then a 3-bolt crux at the end. A 2-bolt anchor provides a smooth descent.... 14 quickdraws recommended.
