DescriptionI'm glad nobody bolted this -- while quite enjoyable as a safe if you know what you're doing trad climb. It would be pretty lame as a clip up.
Rolofson's guide indicates that two trad climbs exist left of the leftmost bolted line. It wasn't clear to me what was what or even that there were two possible lines in the 5.9-5.10 range. What I'm describing here is the most obvious line, which starts about five feet left of Cirque du Soleil.
The leftmost line on Midnight Rock. The first 10m up a corner/crack are pretty continous stemming, laybacking and more with adequate but not always easy pro. After this section, diagonal up left on easy, unprotected, dirty slabbing to another crack which is followed to a walk off belay ledge.
