A rare limestone stem route between the main cliff and the rock-island (Horror Movie Wall) cliff. Starts on the left side of a 3' tall ledge. Most people climb without the stem. The stemming section is about 15' long.

3 out of 5 stars M-Rock Special

Great Warm up. Long(er) Fun stretchy slab start moves to a juggy slab jaunt with a fun finish.

4 out of 5 stars one of the best warmups at Mrock. Downgrade comments...

Justroberto may be the 1st to suggest the downgrade (5.8, from 5.9+). Today Rona suggested it. I went up and agreed, as did Britta. I think back when I bolted it, I had little time on 5.8's and assumed the sketchy tiny crimp section would be harder than 5.8. And not trusting the choss always made it feel very sketchy. It's been solid rock and easy on the arms.

3 out of 5 stars Fun.

Well-bolted to the point of possible over bolting but it is reassuring with the back wall right there.
