Description [Suggest Change]

Climb the hand/finger crack past the roof, then arch up to the right. The crux is right after the roof. Fun smearing and jams.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Small cams, stoppers (TR from tree with a directional placed in the crack).

Insecure feet- this route requires confidence in some near-hands-traverse like moves, but does protect pretty well on nuts, tricams, and tcu's. A good test for the leader aspiring to be "solid" on 5.8 Sep 9, 2002

This can also be done as a foot traverse. Delicate. Sep 9, 2002
Bruce Morris (with David Rosenthal)was credited with the first ascent for awhile but he named it Masurbotorium and somehow that didn't go over well. Any recollections Bruce? Oct 7, 2004

Dave Rosenthal and I did this route in July 1977 and called it the "Masterbatorium" (5.9-). Remember it was a fun crack lead. It really seemed ours was the FA, though, because we had to clean the crack top-to- bottom before leading it. Lots of mud, small tree and bushes. Perhaps Scott W. TRed it earlier, but ours was certainly the first true ground up lead ascent. Maybe the name was too impure for the Boulder-scene of that time? Tried doing a Goggle-search and found plenty of examples of the usuage. Oct 15, 2004

Did Bruce climb this as a first ascent before 1976?Scott Woodruff did it then with Dan Hare and Rossiter gives them credit for the first ascent. Please correct me if Bruce's ascent preceeds theirs. Sep 20, 2005

This is an excellent little climb if you have limited time. The approach takes about 30 seconds from the car. May 20, 2009

It doesn't get more splitter in Boulder Canyon. This lightning-bolt finger crack is a hidden gem... hiding in plain sight apparently, as it's roadside! May 23, 2016
