The right of the 2 shorter routes on the main face of Good M.W. Begin on some pretty good jugs in a crack like feature and shoot up and right through cimpers underclings and whatever else you can figure out. There is a pretty good rest just past the 3rd bolt. The nice looking rails in the DARK black streak are sometimes good, sometimes not so good. Fantastic bit of climbing to send this sucker!


The steep wall just left of the Tomahawk starting crack. Look for a very obvious black streak.

Sweet route! The start is awesome--bouldery, difficult, super crimpy.

I like to start way on the right with weird undercling/crimps pointing the wrong way. it's contrived, but much harder than the left start.

Was a lot of fun working this out. Save some good gas for the ending. many of the great looking rails are not so perfect. I remember totally lunging for one only to hit a depressingly small sloper and coming off!

I really liked this route, probably even more than Sessions. I should have flashed it, but I screwed up the top moves and had to rest once before redpointing it.

I actually found the move above the boulder problem start above the roof to be the rp crux. Probably just the pump talking as I was fresher for the start.
Oh and I start a little left of the first clip on two well chalked horizontal cracks and go right and pretty much straight up. Seemed like way it was intended and bolted but who knows
