Description

Irish Red is Murphy's other beer. This is a satisfying lead with good position at a moderate grade.

There's an 18' old-school runout on easier ground at the top; 1 optional piece would cut it in half.

You can either start directly up the slab or use the ramp on the right. Heck, make you're own adventure and climb up to the new anchor on Murphy's Law if you want. Just don't add more bolts.

This seems a little harder than Murphy's Stout, but what do you think?

Location

This route is on the buttress to the right of Murphy's Stout and to the left of Murphy's Law. The start is right off the trail behind a large pine. There is a diagonal crack about 6 feet up. Rap the route.

Protection

6 bolts to anchors. Bring a cam (0.4-0.75) or large nut (8-12) for the horizontal crack near the top.

This is a good route. I thought it was on the harder side of 5.7, but I am not a slab expert. The crux seemed to be between the 4th and 5th bolts. I think a 0.5 or 0.75 are the best sizes for a cam. It would be easy to join Murphy's Law if you brought a big cam, maybe a #4 or a #5. May 2, 2016
