The second route from the left, MITFL has a tough start and angles up to the left on easier ground ending close to the anchor of Gneiss Lee Done. Look for the hidden “humper” hold 2/3rds the way up. A top rope from this anchor can be used to TR the nefarious 5.11a start/route between GLD and MITFL. Big shout-out to Mr. Lane, the man behind the Bosch. We couldn't have done it without you!


7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

This route ascends left (pendulum potential) and ends only a few feet from the anchor for Gneiss Lee Done (.10b). If you want to make a run at the harder Gneiss Lee Done and don't want to lead it, you can move over and setup a toprope from here (the top of Mike in the Fast Lane).

Agreed, this crag needs some serious scrubbing. Believe it or not, I have already spent quite a bit of time brushing and de-vegetating each route.
