Description [Suggest Change]
This route climbs the steep headwall to the right of Wienie Roast and crosses through the route Sunday Brunch. It has great movement on mixed bolts and gear (like the other routes at Moss Ledges). This route can be easily viewed atop the dryfall opposite the stream from the other routes.
Location [Suggest Change]
This route starts about 10-15 feet to the right of Wienie Roast and climbs 5.7 or 8-ish up to a white arete roof where the bolts (and the steepness)begin. It ends atop the apex the long roof with the chains 5' to the right.
Protection [Suggest Change]
The lower face takes some cams with long runners to reduce drag. Just above the white face and the overlap, clip 2 bolts moving left and then right on the cool arete and cracks, place a medium cam, another bolt then several hand sized cams as you traverse directly across the route "Sunday Brunch". The crux is the upper headwall with a nice finger sized piece then two more bolts. You'll want to sew it up and it takes a ton of gear. The chains are just to the right of the apex of the route on the clean, hard rock up there. One set of cams between blue or yellow tcu through #3 camalot. I only used nuts or long runners on the bottom approach climbing. I like a 70m rope but haven't checked to see if a 60 works.
