DescriptionA very long route on high quality Hatcher granite. From the belay bolt traverse right across a tundra ramp to a small corner (or very fat and large flake) with a crack that goes up and then right; it is initially wide but thins as it goes right. There is serious exposure and no pro on the tundra ramp traverse, but the climbing is easy. Make your first placements in the crack, following it up and right to the first bolt. Follow spaced bolts traversing right and up. The bolts transition from diagonal to more vertical as you ascend. Extended draws are recommended for initial pro and all but the last bolts to reduce rope drag. At the top, walk across a large tundra ledge to a new two bolt anchor with rings shared with Black Dog and Bombay Deluxe.
This climb is also described in the Zydeco Wall/Falcon Slab area by another MP user, but it is not on that wall. The Pulp Culture Wall, where the Pulp Culture climb is located, is in a different but adjacent area.
