Mosaic climbs the right side of the obvious overhanging, plated wall at the gallery. A grungy start leads to easy jugs for a few bolts and a good rest. From here the holds get smaller and a little farther apart as you run for anchors. Both draws above the rest are in annoying spots with the second one being quite hard to hang. Consider yourself fortunate if the draws are in place but prepare to swear a little if they're not.

For those with some fitness this route will seem very easy, perhaps the easiest 12c in the gorge?


One route to the right of Gold Rush and 30 feet left of All That Glitters, the eye-catching right leaning crack.


6 bolts to chains.

There is now a cable permadraw at that last bolt which allows for you to clip at the 2 finger pocket. Good climb with potential for good air if you come up short on that final long move to the jug at the anchors.

Great route. Agreed with the 4 star status in the guidbook. Super good, maybe not quite as good as some of the 5 star classics in other areas of the Gorge. Very juggy and positive holds for the first half give you a little bit of a punp, then the route abrubtly shifts to smaller holds and longer pulls. Overall, a great route and one of the classics of the Gallery for sure.....
