Description Suggest change

Mark was a pivotal climber in the 1980's and was a fantastic partner and avid mountaineer all around the Northwest. On June 14th 2012 he took a long and unroped fall during a solo ascent of Mt. Hood.
This intriguing addition to the Christian Brother's sport climbs is a memorial to Mark. You'll find that it is a little bit safer than BBQ the Pope, especially at the bottom where it has 3 bolts to BBQ's 2. Expect intellectual climbing for the first half and a line that slowly merges towards BBQ towards the end. Following an independent line at the very top is probably harder than traversing into the more chalked BBQ finish.

Location Suggest change

In between Testament Crack to the left and BBQ the Pope to the right. The line has black Metolius Hangers on it. There is now a shared anchor for the MCM route and Testament Crack that is separate from the BBQ the Pope Anchors

Protection Suggest change

This route starts with 6 Metolius hangers and finishes slightly right on the last 2 glue-in bolts on BBQ The Pope, leading to an anchor with fixed biners, so bring 8 draws
