Description [Suggest Change]

This area is just around the corner to the southeast of the main developed areas, and on the next level up. The rock quality here is just as good as the developed area, but the routes here are or will be quite long in comparison, perhaps even 2-pitch. Already in place in the area are at least one epic sport route and a fun trad/TR route. The area has potential for more good routes.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

The approach takes about 30 minutes, or slightly longer than the approach to the main developed areas. After passing the final bolted route there (Unknown Arete), continue up the trail and then around the corner to the right. Once it seems feasible, scramble up the rock to your right, onto the next level. At that point you'll be staring at The Mothership. Slog upward toward the wall on the loose junk pile between you and it.
