Open, with restrictions MORE INFO >>>

Location 

Just to the right of a larger egg shaped Boulder with a shade hallway. Easy and obvious downclimb.

Description 

Start at the large crack at the base of the eret. After clipping the first bolt move right onto face. The crux is after the second bolt at a horizontal crack. Stay on route or it's very loose.

Protection 

4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

I guess this route had been done before me on TR... I lead the route and bolted it where I felt the rock was safes(and where I could get a good stance).. Maybe bring some bigger cams for the bottom like I did, or just run it out to the first bolt. Dirty!!!!

This is hands-down the most aesthetic line at MST. Steep and exposed with quality movement.

A fair amount of loose rock--but no more than you'd expect at this crag.

This is almost surely the worst bolting job at MST.

Apparently the lead bolt on the right is the good one.

Yet when you look closely at the bolt on the right you notice that you're hanging from just a couple of threads.

Higher on the route, you clip this bolt. With a little luck, if you fall, the rock will not break the carabiner.

All in all, it might be best to top-rope this route.

The route has seen repairs and a fair bit of clean up. Still take caution in leading the route as the first bolt is a ways up there and the first 10 feet are quite chossy. The lead bolts pictured above no longer show the routes current quality. A chain has been placed on the bolt with the biner breaking ledge, so have no fear!
