Big air and generally big holds up an overhanging arete and out a big roof. Very cool.


First route left of Triangulate and two corners right of Family Affair.

Yep, bees are still there as of today. Bring a bee suit and some raid if you want an epic battle. The hive is about 10 feet from the hangers. Mar 27, 2016
10-19-2013 High bee concentration at the last bolts becoming increasingly more active around you as you climbed higher. We bailed...

Tomily I have your quick draw. PM me if you want it back. Dec 4, 2012
Moms Rock ends at the hangers above the big roof. You did indeed finish on Family Affair.

When you get to the steep part on Moms Rock the bolt is out to the right which takes you through the steepest part of the roof system.

It is possible at that point to move well left and start clipping bolts on Family Affair there by avoiding the crux of Moms Rock.

Not sure why after you did the crux roof bit onto the ledge you didn't clip the anchors that are right there.

We climbed this yesterday and it has cleaned up very nicely. (Thanks Mik) The warning in the description is no longer a concern. Dec 1, 2012

Great Climb! Spent some time cleaning with a wire brush and it all seems pretty clean and solid now. Just needs some more trafic to turn into an awesome climb. Mostly 10ish with a nice 11 crux passing the last bolt. Great exposure and super fun. Thanks for putting it up. Nov 30, 2011
This route is called "Moms Rock".

Thanks to Eric for doing the work, Geir for holding the rope, and
my mom for instilling in me my love of the outdoors and supporting my crazy climbing addiction throughout the years.

Now everyone get off the computer, go to the phone, call your mom and tell her you love her! Apr 8, 2011
