Make easy moves onto a sloping ledge to reach a high 1st bolt which is best stick clipped. Thin edges with marginal feet (crux) pass the 1st bolt and soon become larger as you reach the next bolt. Pull the roof on good holds and saunter up the upper face to anchors.

This route is basically a boulder problem (which is somewhat reachy) to easier moves above, as well as being one of the hardest routes at the Pinnacles.


This is the right bolted line on the east face of the Mushroom Boulder and takes a prominent line along the border of black and white rock down low before tackling a roof higher.


5 bolts, ring anchors

Pulled off a side pull crimp before second bolt today. It just helped with compressing the move to the next crimper but I think the grade still remains the same. It took a while to figure it out but overall for my height it might be v6/7 moves on that lower section. Fun climb
