Description

MBA climbs toward a small roof just right of Feeding Frenzy. It starts up a distinct face. Some tricky hands and fingers gets you to a stance just below the roof. Snag the roof and a clip, and then power up to the anchors. This was originally done straight up for a 5.11b move but is frequently done by slipping a bit to the left, and this may knock off a letter grade. It has good stone, nice movement, and is a bit spooky on the sharp end.

Protection

Bring half a dozen draws and something for the double-bolt anchor at the top.

Addendum: 2 bolts were added. Originally a trad piece was used to clip the bolt on the overhang, and that was before the feet got all slick. A low bolt was added, too.

What a great climb! A whole bunch of technical face moves and then a juggy roof make this one entertaining from bottom to top. I felt that the face moves were fairly hard to figure out on the first try and were maybe harder than the roof. The footholds are getting really polished, so maybe the climb is getting a little harder with time. Jan 27, 2013

This route is in the top 10 if not the top 5 5.11s at Table. This climb is pretty much business from bottom to top and a true delight. If climbed directly without getting into the chimney in the upper left of the route, this is definitely a test piece for the grade at Table. Enjoy! May 6, 2011

Thanks, TA. Probably long overdue. This route, and the adjacent, badly need these upgrades. Jan 1, 2007
The hangers were replaced 12/06 and 2 bolts added. Originally a trad piece was used to clip the bolt on the overhang and that was before the feet got all slick. A low bolt was added too. Dec 30, 2006
