Description

This route starts with some fingers and hands then fists at the top. The crux, especially if you are short or have small hands, is getting yourself into the top section. It's wide and flaring for a move or two, then there's great fist jams and face/arete features.

If I have the wrong name with this route, let me know and I'll change it.

Location

This route is located to the east of the main area. If you walk along the base to the east and look up, this will be the first set of anchors that you come to.

Protection

Standard rack. There are two bolts at the top with quick links. There are also two more bolts with chains at the very top, set back 3 or 4 feet. With a two 4 foot runners you can set up an easy top rope. There is a fixed #0 TCU about 1/3 height.

I climbed this today and had a good time. Two #3s are sufficient for the top. Watch for loose rocks on the ledge below the wide section.

When the crack up top seems to be getting tough, there is a jug or two that can be utilized to finish the route.

Have fun! Dec 12, 2016

There is a loose, toaster-sized block at the top of the twin cracks section, on the right side. A small crack has formed, and I felt it flex when I grabbed it. I marked an "x" with chalk, but be careful. That's not one you want to send down, and it's an inviting jug. Nov 1, 2013

Not a bad route at all. Fun flair climbing up high. Only bummer is the 1st crux is right off the ground, and the higher crux is right off a ledge. Sep 25, 2013

I agree with Greg, I think Short Tour is more 10- than 9+ and MMB is more 9+ than 10-. With three cruxy sections, the hardest technically is possibly the start. Feb 16, 2011

I agree that two #3 Camalots is the minimum. It would be much more comforting to have three. If you have average-size, man hands, the jams at the crux are big hands, not fist-sized. Dec 22, 2010

Great route. I highly recommend a minimum of 2 blue Camalots (#3) for the upper half of climb- it's a perfect fit in the lower off-width section and can also be useful in upper part as well. You can also get a #4 higher in the off width but wouldn't need if you had more blues. May 12, 2009

Yes, the name is correct, although I believe the FA is Gallagher, or maybe Gallagher/Menendez?

The route name comes from when we were all putting up these routes, we'd never see anyone except the occasional rock hound. One day we saw that someone had spelled marry me becky out with the quarried RR rocks near the edge of the hill (probably still somewhat remains). We lauged about it but 2 hrs later as Kevin was leading the FA on this route a young man came up over the hill at the message, then looked surprised and maybe upset over at our posse. Then a woman arrived, and the young lover went down on one knee, we watched with dutiful attention, just out of ear shot, and when the bottle of wine was brought out of the knapsack we clapped and cheered and the rest is history.
