Description

Mineral Museum is a fine warm-up on largely good stone. Get the first clip without freaking out and the route will be a gas. After the first clip, head a bit left on good fingers and then cut back right onto a run of pegmatite. This still sheds a bit of surface debris nearly 10 years later. After the pegmatite, some big blocks and a fun move through a corner just below the anchors give the Mineral Museum character. Two stars for the fun moves, good bolting job, and convenient warm-up.

Protection

QDs only was the apparent intent. For someone climbing at 5.9, I personally think that getting to the first clip can be a bit hairy. A camming device or two will ease the creep factor. However, if you don't have these along, be assured that there is a huge jug below and right of the first bolt that makes the clip comfortable, but, this cannot be seen from the ground. The route is about 75 feet long and takes 7 to 8 draws. 4 bolts have been added to the route. 11? bolts.
