This route climbs up the center of the low angle East Face. 5 bolts. A fun beginners lead.


5 Bolts to Mussy Hooks.

As of Dec. 2011... Maybe some holds have broken, or I had done to many climbs that day, but from the start to the 3rd bolt or so this seemed way harder then 5.6 and I think this would be a challenging lead for a beginner or 5.6 climber. Jan 29, 2012

Climbs harder than 5.6 through the first two bolts. Feb 20, 2012

I agree - the first couple of bolts are probably 5.7 to 5.8 terrain, the rest is cruiser fun. Mar 12, 2012

Didn't seem that hard, but harder than the routes on either side of it. Maybe 5.6C May 21, 2014

I agree with Matt that it is surprisingly hard for the first two bolts. It's pretty spacious on bolts for a beginner too. I think Panzarotti is the best of the 3 lower grade routes. Jun 29, 2014
