Description 

The original start was left of the corner: up, then diagonally right to where the corner goes vertical. This start avoided a bush that is no longer there. It's harder than the direct start up the open book to the corner. Follow the crack to the overhang. Swing right and finish in the corner above the overhang.

Location 

This route is several hundred feed left (West) of the old fence line, and ~30 feet left of For the Green Penguin.

Descend using the two bolt rap anchor.

Protection 

Standard rack. There are two glue-in Wave bolts at the top as an anchor. The only solid looking natural anchor is the big tree 30 ft. above/beyond the lip.

Mongo is a very nice climb now, and after cleaning, there are interesting routes immediately right of Mongo, well-protected. Note some rotten rock below the book, watch out below!

Did not like those big blocks through the crux. I also felt the seam to right of the blocks did not have reliable rock for protection. Mongo like crack just to the right looks like a much better option.

I liked this route until I did Black Bart and looked at the stacked blocks near the top from the side. It reminds me of some formations in Eldorado Canyon that look like they are about to fall apart.
