A fun slabby climb. Rather sustained, but like most Alabama Hills routes its well bolted.

Excellent steep route which keeps you thinking all the way to the top.

Great route. Well bolted. There are some great rests, too.
Hmmm.... On looking at the route line on this site, it appears I went all the way to the top of Lynch Mob. Oh, well. It works, too.

Hey BAd,

I also finished on Lynch Mob. Had to traverse right since the last bolt was missing and it doesn't seem right to traverse left to the crack.
