Description 

Awesome and sustained. After stick clipping the first bolt sort through an interesting sequence of moves to the second. At the base of the stalactite band, this route turns up the heat! There are good holds, but they can be hard to find. If you can, get as much beta as you can get before launching into the section. Fight the pump all the way to the anchors.


Location 

Second route from the left of the crag.


Protection 

10 TITANIUM bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Mary, Lizzard was put up in 1996 and is about 80 feet long. Jeff bolted it on lead, ground-up, using stainless steel expansion bolts.

It was re-bolted in 2000 with titanium glue-in bolts (courtesy of yours truly) and the rotting steel bolts removed.
