Bolt 4 is over the big tufas. The jug off left towards the top is "on route"; The Stain was bolted later and borrows it.

5 out of 5 stars finally sent all Mossy Wall routes below Ghost.

Beta spoilers: reaching the tufas is done a million ways. Careful foot placement helps reach the lefthand finger sloper. Then I found it more controlled to move left foot (which was off left) back under me into a previously used pocket, then right hand goes to palm the tufa right of the big one, then casually bumps to the big one.

For me and big people, I think it's key to solve the upper crux by smearing right foot on teh big tufa near its top, then power into a left foot stem on The Stain's big horn to help snatch the left slot.

On grading, this route has two power cruxes but requires less power than Never Was (11d) and Moss Cervasa (11c-12a???), but that's when totally wired with perfect foot choice.

First day I was on this I thought that jug to the left was off route. I ended up sending it my 3rd time on the direct line. 3 months later I came back and used the jug. Much easier! Fun route with neat holds and the tufas attract a lot of attention. Definitely a NS classic.

5 out of 5 stars stellar rock climbing

relax. keep your cool. climb efficiently. veer left after #4 to follow the natural line (it's well chalked after all), then manage any pump heading to the anchors. i prefer to clip them while standing at chain level and to the right where there is a giant jug over the top. :)

Super fun route. Definitely destined to be a North Shore classic. Flashed the crux and fell at the chains. But got back on and sent second go.
