Mike Bankoff warming up. Comments about lots of p...


An excellent warm-up option, this route is one of the better routes of its grade at Shelf. Begin on big holds left of the dihedral, climbing to an ominous roof. Surmount the roof on good flake jugs and perhaps a hand jam to a good stance below and on the ledge. A difficult reach clearing the ledge leads to a beautiful molasses headwall of big jugs.


About 40 feet north of Illusions, on the south end of the Vault, is a grouping of 4 routes centered around a prominent prow. MTPF is the left-most route in this group of four. Also this is the 2nd route right of Illusions.


Bolts to 2 BA.

Some fun moves, but the large crack that this line follows is FLOWING with rodent crap.

I never saw any need to get even remotely close to the rodent crap and thought the route was really fun.
