BETA PHOTO: Location of MF


MF starts in a somewhat steep fingers to hands crack that takes tons of gear and reveals cool moves. Use the positive and solid flake at the top to pull the bulge. There are no chains at the top; set a natural anchor to lower or TR. You can breakdown the anchor and walk down a short gully back to the base.


This climb is located in the next gully to the east of the other climbs on the Brighton Frighton wall. Approach as normal to the Brighton Frighton wall passing by the girls camp to the boulder field. Head east instead of west up into the main gulley. This climb has a landmark 'magic' flake near the top.


.5 to #3 Camalots and quickdraws. The top anchor will take a .3 and .4 Camalots and slings.
