DescriptionMorning Town is a brilliant pitch connecting the lower part of GBD with the upper half of Tres Cojones e un Cuernito. It is useful as a warmup for the harder routes on this wall, though this pitch alone is worth the hike up there. It can also be added to any route that reaches the top of either the main buttress or the left buttress of Mary's Bust.
Clip the first 3 bolts of GBD, then continue to traverse up and right toward the 6th bolt on Tres Cojones (one additional bolt on neither route protects the connecting traverse). Continue up the flake on Tres Cojones (gear) to its bolt protected finish. The crux comes at the very last moves.
The exposure on this route is instantaneous, a little reminiscent of Rosy Crucifixion in Eldorado (the air isn't as big, but it's a great position regardless).
