This beautiful line starts in a left leaning crack then transitions to a right leaning crack just past the second bolt.


From the Wicked Crag, hike down river through the "mud bog". Stay left and high after that until you see faint switchbacks on the right. Take this switchback down past a large boulder to a log crossing to the north side of the creek. There are 4 pretty hard looking routes before you reach this one downstream and uphill from the creek crossing.


8 or so bolts to an optional .5 cam placement (or it's a bit run out)

You'll want to climb it as soon as you see it no matter what!

If this is the route I think it is, it is the finest 5.11 bolted route I have ever had the pleasure of climbing.

I'm pretty sure Nathan Martin told me he was part of the FA.

I second that - seem to remember hearing the same thing from Nathan. BTW, I believe it's Madera with an A.
