Description 

Thanks to Jeffe for the eye (you were right, it goes at 11c) and Tyler for the help (you were right, let that rock breathe a bit, get it nice and clean) I was able to bag "My first Moose" Not even a boltgun pinballing down the slab was going to shut this hunting party down. Ramble up the easy and possibly damp slab (if it looks wet, look again, where the holds actually are tends to be dry) to the obvious roof encounter. Don't miss the namesake "Bosch Toss" move gaining the lip. Maybe you could keep your feet on for it? but you are on a magical trip to the rugged north, have some fun, let em' cut and swing all you want. It's a BUCKET I promise. Once you have the landing gear reestablished, find a way to mantle your way to freedom. There's a trick, as there often is on the Lac La Croix granite. See if you can figure it out, or prepare to get burlier than you would expect for the grade.

Location 

The obvious line of weakness right in the center of the Mooselandia roof.

Protection 

8 Bolts (6 draws required + 2 permas in the roof)Steel biners at the anchor
