BETA PHOTO: Mustache Mayhem


Starts out on a good pocket that you can clip the first bolt from, the hands are good through the first couple moves but the feet become kinda sparse.

When you get on top of the ledge you will want to clip the higher bolt to protect the crux, and avoid hitting the ledge, but a lower bolt was added to help out some of the shorter climbers.

The top section is really good climbing with a couple big reaches, surprisingly enough you might start to feel a little pump even though it doesn’t look very steep.

You will find good pockets and ledges to clip on throughout the whole route.

7 bolts and anchors

You really should use you're real name when you're making all the digs in your comments. They'll hold more weight when everyone realizes how awesome a climber you are.

Seems like you have something against the Provo guys?

I have no idea what the previous (now apparently deleted) exchange was in the comments section, so I hope I'm not stepping into a mine field here based on the remanent comments.
Opinions expressed are solely my own and are based on my extremely subjective personal experience climbing the route one time. That said, here it goes. I really liked the look of this line and knew that it was held in high regard by some. I found the line quite intriguing and thought that I would love climbing it. Well, it turned out to be just like a girl I once had a crush on a very long time ago. I was quite attracted to her and thought she and I would really hit it off. It seemed to go well at first, then came the eventual kiss. Nothing. Nothing at all. Not even a fizzle of excitement. A bit like kissing your sister, as the saying goes. That's what this climb felt like to me. To the next person, there might be fireworks, deep love and a life-long companionship. To each, his/her own.
