Eric P. enjoying the lovely symphony of Great Mass...


The hardest moves are right off the starting ledge and the there is a a tricky little musical sequence above pulling over onto the first prominent ledge. The upper half is even 5.5 tempo.


South Tower of the Minor Mass, East Bluff. Climbs nice crack on face left of B Minor route and left of the big pine tree on the ledge up 20 feet of the B Minor route proper up to neat ledges and neat mantles then crosses the B Minor route to take on the final south facing upper most funky fractured block top.


Excellent all the way and never more then a body length except for the first 5 feet where YES... the crux moves are to be found.

First few moves are hard to rate - I could see variations from 5.5 to 5.9, depending on what holds you consider "on".
