Description Suggest change

A fine piece of rock that climbs like a sport climb with gear placements. Seems like you get a good pump on this one but it eases up at the very top. This route is the first part of Mother of Pearl which can be divided into three pitches.

Location Suggest change

On the right side of the gully you have to walk up and under a large collapsed boulder. About 60 feet after is another collapsed boulder where Unreliable starts. The route is 20 feet left.

Protection Suggest change

Set of cams from #3 camalot down to yellow tcu. Some may like a few medium nuts.
