pullin hard


Another outstanding and engaging trad pitch, Might Mouse climbs through steep, solid rock on the left side of Moore's North End. It begins with a funky hand crack corner up to a roof featuring a block to sit on if one is so inclined. After pulling the roof, charge up a finger crack with a few jugs and a few big moves to a rightward traverse at a red band of rock. At the end of the traverse (about 10-12 feet), follow another slightly awkward but fun hand/finger crack to the anchor.


Left of Vascular Disaster (and immediately left of the bolted route Nicotine) on the second of the two main North End buttresses, Mighty Mouse begins on the right side of the dark inset/cave before the trail goes around the corner to Filet-O-Fish and the Recommendation.


Cams from tight fingers to hands, at least a set of stoppers. The anchors are a few fixed stoppers with cables and 'biners.

This is among the safest all gear 11+ routes at Moore's. It was first just 11b. Several holds are gone. Gear is still bomber!

Sustained climbing, great movement, interesting holds, solid rock, bomber gear... one of the best routes I've been on anywhere. Very pumpy.

Used to be one of my favorite single pitches on the planet when it was 11c. Still great, but not as fun to me in its current 11d state. The crux sequence doesn't flow quite as it used to, and the difficulty is more condition dependent.
