The Chris Minneci Memorial Route is a great clean slab. This is a true sport route, so its a good route to work up to more runout affairs like the Final Link. The first bolt is a little high and after the thin crux so a stick clip wouldn't be a bad idea for the timid. The rest is delightful 5.9 up some cool features.

I wouldn't argue if you want to call getting to the first bolt 5.10.

There is an odd, maybe unfinished route just to the right of this - 2 bolts above a crack with a bail biner on the top one.


This route is well above the Egg proper.

Trudge up the gully west of the egg. Keep going as the gully winds along the right side of a clean slab. Just before reaching the bolted slab Eat the Meek, go right on a faint trail through the scrub oak. After a short distance, go up a narrow scree filled gully to the beautiful slab. The last part is tough going on the way up.


7 glue in bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.


Bring a stick clip if having your feet 3' off the ground spooks you.
Good route, clean rock, fun moves. May 24, 2017
