From the anchors on "Sands of time". In the ruckma...


This route is located thirty feet to the left of Ravages of time. Climb what looks to be the smoothest section of the wall. Small edges and some high steppin past seven bolts brings one up to a two bolt belay.
The rock quality is superb!


This route is on the Sea of Glass Wall, just south of and downhill from the main mule hollow wall.


seven draws

This will be a great route once you guys put the first two bolts in... ;).

Felt like 11 slab to me getting through the first two bolts, tenuous and awkward. So much so I backed off on lead, TR'ed it, and still didn't enjoy the opening moves. I'll bypass the bolted start to the right next time and pro the flake on the right, even though that sucks, too. Really good up high, so well worth it. Thought I was at Eldo for just a second there.

Great route with a tenuous start. The (mental) crux is probably getting to the first bolt. After you clip the first bolt and calm down the climbing is great. 5.10- climbing leads into relaxing, fun 5.7/5.8 at the top. Could possibly add another bolt lower down and to the right of the first bolt. Nice job Pat.

Even though the first bolt was a little high, I felt it added to the rating of the climb. The first few moves felt pretty easy, followed by a 9+ move just before the bolt. I like that it wasn't any lower. It really makes you focus in. If it were any lower, the move preceding it would not have felt quite so committing. Loved the route. All the bolts after number one felt a safe distance apart.

The rating of this climb is confusing as Ravages of Time has the same rating and this climb is much more difficult not to mention much more dangerous. I would give this a rating of an 11 as mentioned above.

Seven draws and a stick clip is the new rack for Mule Hollow? Please.
