Find the route as for "Spoof" climb up the ramp of spoof for about 30 feet, until a few bolts become [visible] overhead and slightly to the right. The holds are positive and the bolts are good. [Go] up and over the overhang diagonally right to the first bolt. Clip this and move up to a second bolt. From the second bolt climb the short crux to reach the bolt anchor above.

Lower off from the bolt anchor.


The route can be done on fixed gear alone, clipping a few pins on the start. Supplement with gear on Spoof if so desired, to add security. A few cams work fine, but there is little gear anyway.

Beware of rope eating potential when Tr'ing this climb. Ate me first rope. Mar 7, 2002

This climb has gotten harder since 7/01. And harder again as of Saturday 7/9/04, when I pulled a saucepan-sized crux hold off of it down onto the trail below. At least now what remains seems pretty solid. The climb checks in at maybe 10+/11- for an on-sight at present. Easier if you know the moves, but you might get worked over trying to find them.

Indeed, one will get pumped looking for the holds as I did this past [Saturday]. This f'd up climb ended my fun filled day of getting sandbagged-first on 'Break on Through' then this. Utter humiliation but fun. Jul 12, 2004

I'm pretty sure the full name for this route was "The Divine Ms M". It got shortened to "M" in Rossiter, 2000, and I always assumed it was named after a spectacular Mines student Mike and I both new back in the mid eighties. She would ride her mountain bike from Golden to Eldo (and climbed hard!!).

Also, the nice glue in bolts at the top where placed by Ric Leitner in the late nineties. Mar 10, 2016
