For the rap: follow the gutter (at top of climb) up and left for the anchors at the neighboring route, or go straight up and head right to the big Ponderosa for a quick rap back into the gully/base of route.
This is good MM granite climbing following a "naturalish" line (although 5 bolts were needed), in a very cool location. . . see the attached picture to help with approach.
It is mostly face climbing that accesses some short cracks/seams. The crux is at the top face/bulge.
I put this route up last year (winter?), and it receives good midday sun - the gully may have snow in it however.
Hike around the north face (all the way around, past Coldwater Drama and Stone Knives) of MM and head up into the first, obvious gully (with the small, sentinel Doug-fir), past the Mongoose route and past yet another bolted route (?) (approx. 40' from gully entrance). The trail is rather distinct.
This rock is actually detached from the main Mushroom Massif.
