My notes indicate three cruxes. The line heads largely straight up via some fun 5.11 moves on edgy rock. Jog right after 30 feet or so to get a left hand clip, and then start the very fingery traverse to the left and the 5.12 crux. It seemed like we were on the fingers for a long time, and I thought that there was another tough 5.11c scale move before the line straightens out and runs for the anchors. The rock is blackish here, a bit rounded, with good friction, albeit a bit run out. Good continuous climbing, difficult sequences, and great stone give it three stars in my book.


About 60 feet uphill from P1 of The Red Dihedral, Mighty Mouse is the right of two bolted face routes and starts behind a large pine tree.


QDs only and a 50 m rope.

[Hide Comment] A terrific, thin-face pitch! Very crimpy and sometimes cryptic, this is a good complement to the thuggy overhangs at Industrial Wall. I'm sure it'd be a welcome challenge for any of the strong folks projecting steep 5.13s down the hill.

[Hide Comment] If this were in Eldo proper, you'd have to draw a number and get in line to destroy your finger tips. Excellent, rather (at least how I did it) gymnastic climbing that keeps on you the entire way.

Going up the first time of the day, before there is chalk on the camouflaged holds, will feel a few letter grades harder. Nov 11, 2013
