Description

Pitch 1 - Start just left of the Mother Lode, either up the chimney or on the prow/arete to the left. Gain the corner above and step out to the right clipping a few bolts up to the 2-bolt chained anchor (5.9).

Pitch 2 - Clip one bolt to gain the hand crack above. Climb through the 2nd pitch of the Mother Lode into the clean, finger corner above and continue up the face past 5 bolts to gain the Mother Load belay ledge (5.10c/d).

Protection

Gear to 3" and 15 quickdraws are needed for this 3 pitch adventure. A 70m rope makes for a simple descent back down the the same route. 3 rappels brings you to the ground. The descent with a 60m rope is possible if you rappel to The Other Road anchors to the left....
