Description

The fourth route from the left has an interesting, tenuous start and remains sustained for most of the route. From the top, you can see over the UAC fin and behold the beauty of Deer Creek Canyon. This was named for JCOS Ranger extraordinaire, Mike Morin.

Protection

8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

To me, this is the hardest route on the cliff. I tried it once in bad conditions and got shut down but was able to lead Hasbeen Done in the same conditions that day. I onsighted Gneiss Lee Done, and that felt noticably easier to me. I made it up this time but had to rest a couple times after making clips. Apr 29, 2013

You have to do a small amount of climbing to set up a top rope on this. It is very exposed at the anchors too. I would not recommend a beginner setting up a top rope on this. The climb is fun, but still the holds need some brushing. Dec 13, 2012
