A shot from the heat of development. Bolting roofs...

Description 

The first line bolted at Mooselandia.

Opening face moves are expertly engaging, on stellar black rock. Have a picnic on the giant ledge before strolling along the slab. Then, say hello to my little bulgy friend.

I'm pretty confident that this roof needs someone who boulders V10, especially for the crux (first section of roof). After the crux, it should be around V7/8 climbing, with incredibly fun dynamic moves.

The term 'Mooswu' comes from the Algonquin language. It means "the animal who strips off". This could be from the way the moose strips bark from the trees for nourishment, or from a bull (male) moose stripping velvet from their antlers. Or, both.

Location 

First route on the left, as you are facing the wall.

Protection 

7 bolts + 2 anchor bolts (anchor chains needed)
NOTE: The second bolt on the roof is very high up. I suggest lowering down first from above and placing a very long draw for making the clip. (Bolt may need to be moved or else a long perma draw installed)
