Manwich Queen acends a blunt arete on the right side of the Dome. Boulder hop from the right to gain the base of the route. This is a continuous slab route, with ground fall potential before the second bolt. The crux comes after the third bolt with multiple moves on perfect low angle patina.

The bolts could possibly be supplemented with large gear to the right, but this would change the natural line of the route.


Three original 1/4" bolts, smattering of anchor gear. Walk down either side.

If you climb up to the first bolt, then over to the crack you'll have an enjoyable 5.8-ish climb. You can protect the crack and clip the bolts.
