Description

This wall is left of Upper Mother’s but is part of the same cliff. The wall sits directly behind someone’s house, but it is on BLM land. The cliff is roughly 450 feet tall at its tallest point. Most of the routes are single pitch, but there are a couple of multi-pitch routes as well. Half of the routes are pure sport climbs where the other half require gear. Watch out for cactus and rockfall, I cleaned most of the really bad loose rock off the routes I put up, but you should still be cautious.

Getting There

To access it, park in the WCCC parking lot at Mothers Buttress and hike the main trail to a cairn trail that splits left after you cross the creek before it starts up the steep part of the hill. Follow the cairns up to the cliff side of either the lower part of Upper Mothers or Other Mothers. I did the hike in 17 min from car to cliff with a heavy pack on.

You can climb Lady Boy and get to the anchors of the throbbing project if you care to work/hang draws! Aug 26, 2013
I bolted these routes a couple months ago. Left to right:
1) Lady Boy Show, 5.8+, mixed route.
2) Throbbing Gristle Project, feels like 12b-ish, never redpointed.
3) Crab Head Poseidon God, 5.11b/c.

They all have top anchors and are technically on the far left of Upper Mothers (per Randall Chapman).

There are also 2 old trad lines between Lady Boy Show and Throbbing Gristle that clock in at 5.9+ and 5.9. Aug 26, 2013

That's what I thought when looking at them. Are there bolted anchors at the top? Aug 26, 2013

There are now three bolted routes just right and around the corner from Rudimentary Extraction. Anyone have any information about these? Aug 26, 2013

Thank you John, I've been looking at that and would like do it at some point. I have a line laid out that would go just around your property, but still it would be a pretty direct route. Mar 20, 2013
The WCCC is welcome to construct a trail directly up from the parking lot - definitely would be faster! Mar 19, 2013
