Sweet tricky pure face climb noone's put together during its 7 year lifetime. Clip the safety rope to reach the start on the wedge-shaped boulder. Belayer can go up that boulder and sling the 1st bolt, or else belay down below the boulder (clipping into the safety rope). Climber: after the 2nd bolt, use the jug off right to climb the crimps straight up the bolt line. VARIATION: Tim, The Goatheaded Wizard 5.10d. After the 2nd clip, go left along the undercling flake and up the white streak. (Roni Beer FA on the variation.)

5 out of 5 stars Finally sent after 7 years! Geeze!!!

An extremely fun thin face route with an interesting awkward section, a slightly runout section to get your blood pumping, a cool crescent shaped hold, and very well hidden surprises. Whoever first onsightsthis deserves a prize. If you love Bolt Talk and Unnatural Seleciton (Reimers), come try to onsight this.

I'm rating the Safety PG13 because of the runout necessary to clip the 3rd bolt.

The grade might drop to 5.11a based on comparisons with Bolt Talk & Unnatural Selection.

History: though this route is difficult to read, it went unsent for seven years primarily because Mrock was rarely climbed prior to '07, and until '07 this route's crux-area bolts were poorly placed.
