Contemplating the crux.


Face climb up and right through two bolts up to a crack. The gear is tricky at the beginning of the crack, but it gets better. Follow the crack up through a chimney to a ledge then another ledge with a bolted anchor. Be mindful of loose rock.


This route is 50 yards left of The Eclipse Route. Follow the cliff left over a dead tree till it rounds the corner, the route is on the corner. There was a big rockfall here not too long ago, you’ll walk over the debris to get to the route.


Two bolts, nuts, and cams up to #4 BD.

Nicest of the new routes on Other Mothers! Excellent climbing. We cleaned a bunch of cactus and crap out of the crack, so it should be even nicer.

We climbed a variation to this climb today. After clipping the second bolt, head up and right into the deep cleft. Finishes at the same anchors. Maintains 5.9 difficulty.
