BETA PHOTO: Looking north towards the highway.


Climb a perfect hand crack for 15' in a flared corner. Continue up with a couple of offwidth/stemming moves to the chimney. Climb the chimney and protect in a crack on the right wall to a roof. Pass the roof (#3 Camalot) to some more easy chimneying and top out to the left on easy terrain.


This is on the far west end of Mighty Mouse Wall. Scramble up and right from start to Elysium to the back side of the detached fin. Chimneying 101 is the first route on the back side. See the Beta photo on the main page.


BD singles from #0.5 - #5 with extra #3. Shares anchors with Elysium. Rap 80' to the south.

Excellent climb, especially at the 5.8 difficulty level. I did not place my #5 Camalot...so you should be fine without it... A 2-Bolt anchor instead of rap-slings would help this climb see a lot of traffic.

I installed a 2-bolt rap station with some beefy chains today.
