This route is to the immediate right of Lions Jaw. Traverse in from the left to the first bolt and then climb the bolted face. Use the dull arĂȘte with your right hand but stay to the left. If you are on bad rock, then get back left.


Left end of the Morning Glory Wall...It's the bolted face just to the right of Lion's Jaw...Before the bulge that is Tammy Bakers Face


6 Bolts to the anchors

just watch the loose rocks on the right side of the arete, some people on the ground might get hurt if you grab too hard and break one. staying left and dont touch that is a smart choice Jun 19, 2013

The bolt anchor on the left is now so loose it can be twisted without resistance in either direction. I feel like if I would have pulled on the bolt itself it would just pop out. Aug 22, 2013

If you like garbage rock and pockets full of bird poo this is the 5.9 to do. Jan 9, 2014

I tightened the left anchor bolt today, but it'll continue to work loose until someone hangs chains on the hangers: when you thread the hangers and rap, it torques the hanger counterclockwise. I'm visiting from Rumney, so I didn't bring the gear to fix it right. If you want to climb this route and there aren't chains on it, bring a wrench or a medium stopper to back up with in the crack.

All that said, it was a nice route if you stay off the rotten stuff to the right. Mar 29, 2014

It's a fun route--I don't recall anything loose or any bird shit. Oct 20, 2016

This route is pretty fun if you stay on the face - clean, solid rock. As others mentioned in years past, the left anchor bolt is still loose - I hand tightened it as much as I could. There are chains on this route now, probably just needs an actual wrench to tighten it enough that it won't come loose for a while.

Both anchor bolts seemed plenty good though - I rapped off them without a second thought. This one is definitely worth doing, especially if the alternative is waiting in line. Oct 23, 2016

With other classics on this wall, I think this route is overlooked. Did not notice any loose rocks (as I stayed on the left of the arete) or bird shiz. Staying to the left of the arete in my opinion keeps it at 5.9 rating using the arete, a good left food and a right foot smear. Had friends lead it before me staying right of the arete and made I look funky and harder than a 5.9. Good versatile set of moves used to get to the tops. Aug 25, 2017

Pretty good route, but went to climb it today and the third bolt appears to be missing so the climb to the fourth bolt is fairly run out (forgot to count the bolts so I'm not 100% sure about this). Probably would avoid it right now if you aren't a very comfortable 5.9+ climber. Jul 29, 2018

The multiple rocks on right side arete sounds a bit hollow, might break off at some point. Oct 13, 2018

  • ***NOTICE**** The third bolt/hanger is missing. If you lead this, a fall while clipping what is now the third bolt is most likely a groundfall.

Appears the left anchor bolt has worked loose again - I didn't have the gear or know how to tighten the bolt myself, sorry. Just a heads up! Dec 6, 2018

It's a squeeze job, and soft for the 5.9 rating, but the climbing is enjoyable. No bad rock or bird shit if one stays on the face, although one can undoubtedly find both by going around the right corner. Be careful, though: the third bolt is either missing a hanger (could't find either a bolt or a hole, though), or placed way too high. A fall while clipping what factually is the third bolt is guaranteed to make you deck, so don't lead this route unless you are very comfortable on 5.9. Dec 29, 2018

Third bolt missing. Found the drill spot; appears to be a sleeve left behind (I don't know anything about bolting). Didn't sling some features on the arete because that rock is incredibly loose. Groundfall potential getting up to the new 3rd bolt. Jan 13, 2019 · Temporary Report
