On the south face of the Morbid Mound, a crack system lies perhaps 5-8 meters right of the left edge. This is Bouncer, and just left of that is a slab route, near the left edge, climbing the face there past a few horizontals up top. Not much good for pro, and harder, or at least more insecure than Bouncer - don't fall!

You can get a good "butt belay" stance above it that is secure to bring up a partner.


No pro really. Solo it or get a pad and spotter, which probably isn't enough? Or maybe a TR?

There's a new bolt before the crux face moves (second half of route above ledge)

That's a shame.
Hope there gets to be a 'gone' bolt soon.
