Fun moves between good holds. Setup Top Rope after leading S-Crack. Stays dry in the rain.


Just Left of S-Crack. Starts on two two finger pockets, move up on edges to a right jug side-pull. Make a large crux move to a high jug. Finish on easy terrain to S-Crack chain anchors


Top Rope off of S-Crack Anchors.

Yeah it's a nice route. Definitely considering adding a couple of bolts.Probably not real soon. Also thinking of having a left variation to Super Dad's, that would end at anchors above wide crack. it should be nice as well. Thanks for your input to make MRG a better climbing area.!!

I'm hoping to make it down at the end of August to bolt the route. Really looking forward to doing this one on lead, it was a fun climb to work, really the only thing that stayed dry the day I was down there. Just ordered some Stainless Steel bolts to equip it.

All bolting at the MRG has to go through the MRG Climbing Committee. Please send them (Jim is part of the committee) an email to discuss this. I'll PM you the email address.
