|Motherlode Rock - North Face
Bolted route left of Short Fuse, slab climbing with a smear crux near the top around the 8th bolt. A great warm-up or first lead.
In between "Short Fuse" and "Smackdown"..rap or lower.
10 bolts, sport anchors

This will be a lot more fun if it sees some traffic and cleans up. As it stands, it felt like a lichen-covered gardening project. Interesting rock up near the top.

if you stay on the slab, and out of the cracks (in other words:stay on route) its very clean

Did this route today (on sight) and I feel that this is no where near Holcomb quality. It's a grainy mossy mess right now, way awkward, and felt much harder (yet less fun) than the 5.8 to its right. The rap anchor is very sloppy: two throw away biners clipped into the bolts with a funky chain/rap setup, the chain is also much thinner than any of the other Holcomb anchors. When pulling the rope, it easily gets stuck in the right crack around the loose microwave-sized chock stone.
