Private Property Details
In 2011, the Ventura Family (owner of Miguel’s Pizza) purchased the land above the cliff line, and the RRGCC’s 2017 purchase of the land beneath the cliff line and the surrounding areas ensures that the Motherlode, Chocolate Factory, and southeastern end of Sore Heel are climber-owned. The Ventura's have formed the Motherlode LLC to cover the liability of the land.
DescriptionThis pretty golden wall hosts a technical route with a spicy run to the third bolt, some long reaches, multiple unique cruxes, and just enough holds to make it possible.
Ten feet of easy climbing on mediocre rock leads to good holds below the first bolt. Make a super long reach to a stacked two-finger pocket, and move right along some pockets to reach a poor rest below the first crux. Crimp past a miraculous series of holds on an otherwise blank wall and make a long move to a good but strange pocket. Follow the iron rock protrusions left, commit to a tenuous 3rd clip, and rest up on a large fin sticking out of the wall. Get your feet on these fins and balance past the second crux to a difficult 4th clip and a punchy move to more iron fins. Pumpy edges lead to the chains.
People below 5'8" might find some of the reaches very hard. Hence, it may be 12d for tall folks and 13a for shorties.
