Description 

Somewhat fun climbing on friable rock- tho the saving grace is that there are plenty of bolts. Crux is a long reach move several bolts from the top. Should have ended the route on the 2nd to last lead bolt. Debatable, in the beginning, if it would ever totally clean up, but seems to be heading there.

Location 

Located just right of Love Sinks. Follows a grotty crack up the wall. 80 meter rope gets one lowered to the ground. 70 meter rope lowers one to the upper ledge with 3rd class down climb. Can be done with 60 meter rope but requires a double rap. Can also be done with 60 meter rope to the first pitch anchor of the route immediately right.

Protection 

16 bolts to Mussy anchor.

Fun route, big holds. Will it clean up? Gets a fair bit of traffic. Belayers wear your helmets.

The name is Makayla, not Makala. Dan Mcdevitt named it after his daughter.
