Description [Edit]

This varied route tackles the steep wall to the right of the giant obvious roof that makes up the far right of Middle Mothers.

Pitch 1: (5.9) climb up mixed bolts and gear for a great casual pitch that should not be missed. Keep to the arete and end at obvious anchors at a ledge. Bring a few finger and smaller sizes to supplement the bolts, 70'.

Pitch 2: (5.11-) from the belay, traverse dead left through a few bolts over some great exposure and awesome moves through a shallow vein. Gain a crack system for 30'. Follow the bolts around further left up the tan granite and to a belay ledge and anchors, mixed gear/bolts, 100'.

Pitch 3: (5.10) climb the slab past a few bolts to a large ledge. Head up past knobby and chickenheaded features. Look for the large pinyon tree, and trend towards it. The anchors are down and right of the tree, mixed gear/bolts, 100'.

Pitch 4: (5.11-) this is the second classic pitch of the route. Clip a bolt and gain an obvious ledge. From here, clip another high bolt and make a challenging move. Use a mixture of bolts and gear as you climb at the contact zone between the pegmatite and polished, bomber granite. Trend towards a short roof and make a few strenuous moves over the roof to easier ground, 100'.

The route is 30' or so shy of topping out. The rock degrades after the last pitch anchors.

Location [Edit]

When viewing the far right of Middle Mothers, look for the large, left-arcing roof that is hard to miss. Denouement begins just right of the roof's origin. The bolts of the first pitch arete will be obvious.

Do a double rap from the top to the pitch 3 anchors. Do a single rap to top of the pitch 2 anchors. Do a double rap to the ground.

Protection [Edit]

Doubles from small to #1 Camalot, one #2 Camalot, nuts, runners, and two ropes.
