Just Past the Crux on Bad Seed

Mount Charleston Wilderness Area MORE INFO >>>


Classic Mt C pocket pulling!

Follow a traversing line of crimps to the obvious traversing line of all natural pockets. The first bolt is just left of the first bolt of Going In.

The super fun crux is at the 4th bolt. BIG undercling move off a bomber pocket on bad feet to a rad half pad 2 finger side pull (pocket like feature).

I really enjoyed climbing this route! So much fun!

A line heading directly up from the ground to the anchors of this route would be good! Very hard...but good.


Far right side of the cliff. Starts just right of the rad little somewhat hidden cave. About 30 feet right of Blue Skies and essentially starts on the start of Going In. (Don't clip the first bolt of Going In). It is THE obvious line of pockets.


5 Stainless Bolts to Double Mussy Anchor

This route was bolted solely for the purpose of allowing for the first ascent, and the first ascent information is posted here solely to document the history of the first ascent. No person should read this posting with the assumption that this route or the fixed gear left behind is safe in any way or otherwise appropriate to allow for safe subsequent ascents. Climbing is dangerous and should only be done with the appropriate training and risk management practices that include providing for the climber’s own safety. Attempting to climb this route as described above or by any other means or methods could result in injury or death.
