Description

LMA is one of the steepest routes at The Forks and is the crown jewel amongst the other gems on the Sine Wall. As the story goes... LMA was a last minute addition to the Bloom guidebook just as it was going to print. An ambiguous description from visiting climbers from Tucson got it into the guidebook just in time but the complete radness of the pitch was left out. The true difficulty may have been left out also...

LMA climbs a low angle slab to a stance below a broken orange shield. Follow broken holds into the steep twin tips cracks. Blast it and end up on a bivy ledge. Step back out and follow thin seam on an arete to the topout.

Location

LMA starts in a small outcove on the right side of the Sine Wall. Climb through steep cobblies onto a slab and under the steep orange shield.
