Description 

This is a very nice addition from Martin, a typical Rifle start with pocket and sidepulls leads to the second half where stemming and intricate corners prevail.

Location 

This is [second one to the] left of Lost and Found. The route name is on a stone at the start of the route.

Protection 

16 bolts - fixed anchors at top.

Rope length = I used a 70m but was told that a 60 m is just enough (but didn't check myself).

This unique route is actually the second one to the left of Lost and Found. A 5.12d called Dirty Johnson is immediately left of Lost and Found.

Thanks for updating D-Storm, I didn't realize there was another route in between.

Martin Killin' it! Great first 12! and a 60 works swimmingly.

I thought this climb was called Martin's Mom :)

I used a 60m to climb this, and with rope stretch, I was able to make it to the ground, but my partner only had about 2" of rope left in his Grigri! After I untied, my end was about 15 feet in the air, so be really careful if you do this with a 60m rope.

The route was cool, and the difficulty slowly cranked up to a tough finish, but there were a few big Xs on suitcase-sized rocks around midway that were hard to avoid. It was hard to tell how fragile they were, but someone obviously got concerned.
