Jim Haisley snags the coveted second ascent of Meg...

Description 

Megadeath shares the same start with Five Easy Pieces (FEP). When FEP cuts up and right Megadeath climbs a nice hands crack to a small ledge. From here layback around the overhang to a nice stance. Then launch up hands to ow crack making a great left reach to the clifftop just as the climbing gets really hard.

Descent - Scramble down 4th class terrain right of PMC or rap from bolts atop the Right Deception Crack.

Protection 

1-4" cams
Medium - Large Stoppers
Slings and Draws
Tape for your hands is not a bad idea. My gobis took two weeks to heal.

climbed this route yesterday (2-21-2014), some bolts for the anchor would be really nice. there's a tree to anchor off of a bit back from the edge of the cliff, but with a couple boulders that may cut runners/cord with some rubbing
