Massif Groove is a unique and very enjoyable 9 bolt line that should be on everyone's LOTL ticklist. The route starts up three bolts of steep mega-jugs before a roof. The face looks like it could be loose, but is super solid! Clip the fourth bolt with a long draw or sling to prevent any rope drag; only two more easy moves will get you to the fifth bolt. The crux is pulling over the roof on devious but sizable jugs. Finish with four more bolts, intersecting with Delicate Tiger at the last two.


Overhang in the center of Midway Rock.


9 bolts, chains and lower off biners.

bring a long draw or shoulder sling for the fourth bolt.
