Description

After TR'ing 'Crucifiction', try the direct start, avoiding the first two bolts on 'The Mantra.' Climb directly up the hideously wet, mungeful, and technical seam. Most will find this route awful, I quite enjoyed it.

Location

This is the direct start to 'Crucifiction.'

Protection

This was TR only. If it ever dried out, it might be worth developing. It is good alpine training as a TR.

It appears that someone has recently bolted this route. I am glad that someone found it to be as much fun as I did. I wish I could had helped the effort. I would be interested to know what said bolt party thought of the grade and how much they had to clean this rig. I will have to go give it a shot. Thanks to whoever has been filling in the gaps in Dream Canyon lately, lots of new shiny bolts. Dec 28, 2013
