Description [Suggest Change]

Motorcycle Mama is the giant left-facing corner on the left side of the crag. 90'. beautiful, unlikely left facing corner. follow the corner using jams, liebacks, and face climbing. very imaginative despite the grade. 5 stars!

Joanne O'Brien is my mom and she drives a Harley Davidson, happy mother's day mom!

Great route, Classic safe easy lead for beginner. Only wish it were longer. Starts easy than has a 5.5 move and some fun lie backs. Used doubles BDC4 #3, couple #1, #2, .5, Met Powercam #1. After setting anchor, try face just to the left of crack. It is probably 5.5-5.6. Best approach with out bushwacking is directly under Dream Girl. Apr 9, 2012
Nice route. Rough approach. Feels easier than both Tonto and Peaches. Rap tree raining copius amounts of sap, the hairy beware! May 20, 2013

Don't approach the route from the left or you will find yourself scrambling class 3 and bushwacking thru holly bushes. Approach slightly from the right under Dream Girl. The webbing was dry rotted and replaced on 11/29/13. It needs another quick link the next time someone is on it. The crux was a little awkward for me, but an easy well protected onsight. Nov 29, 2013

The rap station on the tree is in good shape, with two screw links and fresh webbing. That is one sappy pine tree, though! Apr 11, 2014

Added second quick link to the rap anchor. In comparison to other climbs in Willow Springs, feel this should be rated 5.6. Fun climb and rock quality is excellent. Just over too soon. Apr 13, 2017
