Description

A beautiful slab and thin face route that climbs through 4 separate and distinct colors of rock. Start at the first bolt line left of the obvious Bimathalon crack/corner.
Thin moves early lead up a naturally clean brown slab to a horizontal break. Step right, and make more thin face moves onto a green face. Go up to a small dike, and traverse up and right (more thin moves) to the base of a perfect pink slab. A sustained section of 5.9 slab goes up the pink streak to it's end. Straight up to a clean black streak and the final bolt on Morticia P2. Easy run out to the Morticia 2 bolt anchor.

Location

At the left end of the main slab, about 50' left of the obvious Bimathalon crack/corner. Climb the bolt line angling up right through a clean brown slab. Rappel twice with a 70M rope (angle climbers left on the 1st rappel to reach the P1 belay of Lurch.

Protection

13 bolts, a few extendable runners for traverse. 70M rope is mandatory for leading-a 60 will not reach the anchor.
