Description 

Haul out a burly roof to a smeary crux passing the first clip. This is mostly fun climbing with a tricky second crux at the third clip. It may be nice to stick clip the first bolt. Alternatively, the roof will take a bomb-proof cam placement (# 2 or 2.5 Friend) that protects the start. It should be unclipped after bolt #1 has been clipped. It is also nice to bring a ground cloth or largish ropebag to sit on. This section of the forest has probably never been trod on by human beings.

Location 

This is currently the furthest left of four bolted routes.

Protection 

Six quickdraws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

Braneworld has cleaned up nicely and climbs well. Some tightly adherent crustose lichen remains on the last several feet that did not pose a climbing problem at all. It might be slippery if wet from the rain however.

This wall Richard put up is great addition to Mill Creek. It's totally different climbing than the front side. Mostly strong roof pulling fun. Worth climbing all the routes on this side of Mill Creek Crag. Although the first move crux is to get on the face, the rest of the climb is very enjoyable as well. All 3 out of 4 of the climbs have strong exit moves.
