This short but worthwhile route has good rock, mellow moves, and a quick crux nearing the end. If you're feeling adventurous, you can even mantle over the top.

Boulder up onto the ledge above the small cave and clip the first bolt on the right. Easy moves up good holds will get you to the fourth bolt and then figure out the sequence through the crimpy finger cracks before getting back to jugs and the anchor. Topout if you want.


This is the shortest route on the buttress to the right of the gully. Mutiny climbs the right side of the face right of Clambake and Calypso, to the left of Mussels and Little Mermaid, directly above the small, ground-level cave.


4 bolts to anchors

5.9 climbing to cool 10b finish. Moves at the top were reminiscent of the left trending crux at the top of "No Money Down"

5.8 or easier climbing to a solid tricky crux that is 10b. Fun route but definitely not as good as it's neighbor.

Has anybody else noticed that there's always something just a wee bit tricky about an Ed Esmond route? My son and I climbed this one when it was wet, and that added extra spice, but I couldn't figure out the crux move to the left until Ian told me to get sideways and do a drop knee. A cool move but . . . tricky!

LOL, Nick. Yes, I do, and all the time. I guess we need to be more cerebral when on one of Ed's routes!

Or just bray a lot :)) Yes, they seem to always have something tricky, but I usually like them.
