5 out of 5 stars THis is the first time I got it clean

I have never been able to get through the first crux cleanly. Today it was a breeze. Of course the rest of the climb is juggy happy fun.

5 out of 5 stars Mother's Day Party

Followed bparry82 and jackflash up this a couple of years ago, but fell both times. Got it clean on lead.

A great route with two distinct cruxes. The first is not so bad if you have strong fingers, the second crux involves huge moves between great holds...while a solid piece of gear gets progressively further away as you proceed up.

Worth noting: MDP starts 15 feet left of MF, and just right of Interstice.

4 out of 5 stars Big move

So there I was contemplating 'the move' up high. A fellow climber did all of MF, and still I contemplated. My poor belayer, bless her. At least I demonstrated excellent finger endurance if not actual climbing prowess.
Why it took me so long to make what was essentilly a straightfoward move, I don't know.

4 out of 5 stars Mother's Day Party

Wow! Big moves to big jugs. Cool climb! Just did P1. Watch for loose block (shoebox size) within first 20 ft it would have be a great handhold if it wasn't so loose.

3 out of 5 stars good and sustained route when it is dry

I really wouldn't consider this a "g" protected route, and the lunge at the top for the big jug is pretty darn hard. Fun climbing though, and well worth the toprope after climbing MF.
