Muad'Dib.  Start on the right and move left past the first two bolts.  Tricky sequence getting past the second bolt.

[Hide Comment] Great start to this route, requiring balancy, slab technique. The moves were non-obvious, and the thought process was part of the fun. Jul 4, 2007
[Hide Comment] Two hard parts, the rest easy. First hard part at 2nd bolt, about 10c. Aug 6, 2009

[Hide Comment] The area by the second bolt is certainly the crux. The moves are not obvious, and it takes some thought to figure out the best sequence. The steep part up high is strenuous but not that hard. Apr 6, 2015

[Hide Comment] Fun lower crux, decent route for sure if you're in the area. Unfortunate bolting though - definitely some unnecessary ledge/deck potential with the bolt placement. Funny how you round the corner and the grades change, felt like a BoCan 10b but a Castle Rock 9. Jan 23, 2017
