Doc on Medicine Man. We waited for him to recover...


A great line with good moves broken up by decent rests and nice position. Begin a bit left of the arete and climb the face to a stance and clip a bolt. Work up the arete, then around it, and eventually back left and up to the anchor.


The obvious arete at the Medicine Man Buttress. This is clearly visible to the right from the popular route, Mystery Achievement.


5 bolts, a 1" cam, and a 3" cam, 2 bolt anchor

there's a decent tree down across the base of this wall. bring a hand saw with you if you are heading up and want to climb this baby.

This is an awesome pitch. I seem to recall placing a grey alien somewhere too, but I don't think it was mandatory. I was just kind of gripped because I was leading it in my friends shoes that were a size and a half too big because I forgot mine! Would like to go back and climb it with some proper edging shoes!
