Mission Control

5.12d, Sport, 90 ft (27 m),  Avg: 4 from 5 votes
FA: Equipped by Mark Hanselman; FA: Jonathan Siegrist
Idaho > Central Idaho > Fins > Discovery Wall > Mothership Sector

Description

A classic line (probably more logical than Bare Knuckle Boxer as the rope line is straighter and the extension is easier than either Bushido or Mothership). Solid for 12d... Maybe 13a if you're shorter or have large fingers?

Climb Mothership. Once you clip the crux bolt, reach down and unclip the previous draw to reduce rope drag. Continue... past the anchor... and past four more bolts to the giant Mothership pod.

Location

Begin under the right end of the long mid-height roof, continuing to the Mothership pod at the top of the wall. Easy to ID by two prominent, heavily chalked monos.

Protection

13x draws plus an additional one for the intermediate anchor.
