Climb the right end of the wall through a number of bolts. The rock quality is poor, and there are still unavoidable loose sections. I would not recommend this route.


Bolts to a two bolt anchor shared with The Black Tuna.

Agreed Randy, the route is the worst of the bunch so far. I TR'd it after leading The Black Tuna (which I found very enjoyable albeit loose). MRR has a forced line past bolts 2 & 3 and pretty loose. The ledge above needs to be swept of large debris and the headwall is loose and cruxy for sure. The three neighboring routes to the left make it worth while area but this rascal is one to skip.

Basically a bomb as RV suggested but it gets a start mostly so I can view the tick on MP with ease. Dec 6, 2011
6 bolts. Loose Rock and nothing to recommend about it. Easy, but loose, climbing to last bolt and crux headwall. Oct 30, 2011
