Three pitches of great climbing and scenery. One of the finest in the Potrero.
P1: 5.8 Great jugs follow 11 bolts to a good ledge. Crux near top with thin moves. 100 feet.
P2: 5.10b Balancy moves past 7 bolts to a hanging belay after 80 feet. About two-thirds of the way, you move right about 8 feet.
P3: 5.9 Nice moves to a beautiful ledge. Bring lunch. 9 bolts over 100 feet.
Rap with on 60M rope.
This is the leftmost route once inside the gate. Follow the red rock path to the base and move a little left. Dope Ninja is also on Mota Wall, but is much farther to the left and is accessed from OUTSIDE the gate.

I really enjoyed this route. In Dane Bass's book, it has no stars, but much prefered it to other climbs around it at the Mota Wall. The 3rd pitch of 5.9 is excellent.

I think this is a great climb. Stay off of P4 and you have an EPC classic. The 10b pitch is a one move wonder, harder if you are short.

Nice Starter multi pitch on the lower MOta. Mellow and smooth climbing with lots of sunshine!! Watch out for dropping stuff on people bellow because there will be lots of them!
