DescriptionAn excellent multipitch sport climb on pretty darn good rock. A short approach make this a good route to do if in the area and looking for something longer than can be found in Heart Creek.
Approach / DescentApproach: Walk up the approach trail to the base of the slabs, and naturally follow the trail right. Morning Side starts about 40m right of the cave opening on the trail. Walk past the cave until you hit a short 4m tall pillar that the trail skirts around. This is the start of the climb, look for bolts that head up. It's follows the face just right of Kahl Crack.
Descent: walkoff to the right or rap the route if no one is under you. Rap from P4 to P3, then P3 to P1 (58m rope stretcher), then P1 to the dirt.
