DescriptionOh man! If you climb anything between 10c and 11d and you're at Area 51, The Mothership is a MUST DO! Written up as the best climb at the crag in the guidebook, this route is incredibly fun, and will provide plenty of challenge and reward for anyone in this range. The book does not lie, it's simply that good!
It's long, pumpy, full of great moves and has perfectly placed bolts (with the exception of first), there's nothing to dislike here!
The first bolt is 25 feet up, and will be an exposed reach for shorter climbers. If uncomfortable, bring a .5" X4 cam or a larger tricam to place in the horizontal crack just below.
Once clipped, the first crux is a highly entertaining move surmounting the bulge.
Follow the bolt line left on a thin slab as you work yourself into that awesome crease. The bolt line then travels up and right in the crease until you hit a small overhang.
Make the roof moves and pump your way to the finish on ample jugs
