Description

The best line at Morbid Mound. The route starts in the middle of the south face, about 15' left of Hillside Strangler, the prominent chimney. Gain steep vertical crack and patina plates with positive holds.

Protection

Some webbing and a few pieces if toproping.

Great route with bouldery start. Put it on a higher respected formation and it would get consistant stars. Always fun....edges, chickenheads, cracks.....best route on the mound usually gets two laps because of it. Mar 28, 2011

Easy to top rope, a few good solo's, etc... Walk up the backside and down the same way. Often crowded with classes. Short climbs. Easy and good for beginners or for those that enjoy freedom from gear. Oct 27, 2003
