BETA PHOTO: Overview of Mussypotamia


First Pitch: Step up and into the corner with a slick start. Bolts lead all the way up with some interesting moves and a great location. Don't let the looks of this scare you off if you don't like wide stuff. It climbs real well as a face climb with just a bit of wiggling.


Blue Balls is the huge left slanting crack feature on the right side of Mussypotamia. It looks like an OW / Flare, and it just might be..... Bolted anchors, single rope rap.


11+ bolts on both pitches. Last pitch is 5.6 slab for about 2 moves. Bolted anchors on pitches #1 and #2, not sure about the topout anchors.

The name of this route describes the scene in Bishop back in the late 90's. The actual Blue Balls Conga Line was the all the single young males that would traipse around behind a certain single local girl, their tongues out, dirty nape fully lathered, hoping for action. Never happened! Poor suckers!
