Description

Mosaic ascends the blocky, grainy face just to the right of Cosmosis. Start on a short, light-colored slab at ground level, and head up, tending a little to the right, along the path of least resistance.

I'm not much of a fan of this route -- I think Apparition Rock in general is a crappy choss-pile -- but my buddy really liked some of the pumpy moves down low and didn't seem to mind that every time he tried to get a smear with his feet the rock crumbled out from underneath him. So I'll compromise and give this route one star.

Standard rack.

Worth a lap while in the area. Too bad that generally means another walk-off which is somewhat of a hassle from this formation. Mar 28, 2011

New route on the far far left side of Mosaic wall in Indian Cove The Liver Is Evil and must Be Punished (either 5.10+ or 5.9+)....left start is the hard start and has 2 more bolts.... right start comes in from the right and has 2 bolts.... bring slings to tie off 2 knobs.........shortish approach, and something you haven't done in Indian Cove....

I agree with Brian - kind of a chossy route, although the lower half is okay. Maybe a half star. Oct 23, 2003
