A decent shorty featuring typical ORG crimping on nice rock. The crux is from bolts three through four. There is a long runout from the last bolt to the anchors on 5.8ish terrain which can be protected with gear in .5" range. Also, if you're feeling as weenieish as I did when I did MOR, there is a solid but tight green Alien placement between bolts 3 & 4.


MOR starts atop a pedestal, close to where the trail across the river meets the trail that traverses the base of BB.


4 bolts, optional but recommended yellow Alien.

Ran out the top. Looked mellow-ish from the ground, but in hindsight, I should have brought a cam. As they say, "place a piece for your mom".
