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.
A long fun line that begins just as you enter the left side of the chocolate factory (when the trail forks take the left side instead of the right which takes you over to oompa and loompa) One of the first climbs you will come to as you gain the cliff band. Starts on large blocks under a roof. Pull through the low crux to find nice long juggy climbing above with a steep finish. Take time to enjoy the large sit down hueco in the center of the climb. Watch for friable rock, recommend stick clipping the first bolt due to possible poor rock conditions. With more travel to clean up some of the choss I think this could be a Red classic, a powerful start with a cruiser finish makes for an incredibly enjoyable way to spend a sunset at the end of the day.
