An outcast. No, really. This route is about 60 fe...


The climb is on edges and pockets with a big toss up high. It gets forgotten about but well worth the time. Great rock!


This route will be the first one you come to after the Trail Of Tears wall. You have to climb up to a elevated belay by a tree

Is this over by Hung Like a Horse? New I suppose?

No. It is the first route after the Bare-Fisted Grizzly Killer wall. Did you ever see or do Beezlebub? Or do you remember the two routes Cronin bolted a looong time ago, one of which is now Mephistopheles? This route is to the right of those about 30 feet or so. It's a bit hard to see off of the trail. The bolts are kind of concealed by a big birch tree and it starts off of a chunk of stone about 10 feet off the deck. It's a good route with great stone, though. More people should do it.

Speaking of hung like a horse, there will be about half dozen new routes over there by this summer. Should be some really good lines.

I'm not sure if I've done this or not. Is it the route that has a wicked crimper sequence for the crux? Cronin had the reach to bypass most of it? It sounds like it is but I could be wrong.

I remember the stone down by Hung Like a Horse to be really good, have a good time putting those in. Will they be similar gradewise to Hung?

I'm pretty sure you are thinking of the correct route.

I like your idea of a drill bit on my @#$. That will give me a reason to pound on a hand drill. It would be mine and I could hammer it as many times as I wanted. Miah, I think you are thinking of the correct route. But you know as well as I do that I NEVER use my reach to bypass a crux. The routes down at the Red Light District look like they could be hard. But there should be a few moderates. There are 8 new routes left of Bear Fisted. Lee said they should mostly be moderates. That would be great to have a concentration of warm up at that end of the Mo. I also can get you pitch by pitch beta on Logical Progression from Rob Pizem. He was involved with the FA. They did all the pitches clean but in two diff pushes I think. Let me know and I can get you in touch with him. He lives in Austria now but he loves to share beta.
