To find [Morrocan Roll], hike into the [Gallery] and follow the trail up to the [Mural Wall]. As you reach the base of the [Mural Wall], there is somewhat of a left facing corner. On the right face should be a bolted line that starts out low angle and gradually steepens. The top section is light tan rock and is kind of thin.
Slab your way up increasingly difficult rock and through the crux up at the top. It's a pretty fun little route and worth doing if you are in the area.
5 bolts and anchors (i think). Lower half [acquired] some bolts in the last few years.

This route could probably be at least a letter grade lower, if it weren't for the way the anchors are set up. The left anchor is higher than the right one - and you can reach the right one from a semi-nice clipping stance. However, unless you're 9 feet tall, you HAVE to make this funky, thin, off-balance move to get to the left one. Plus, the offset anchors means the rap off weights them unevenly - lame. Otherwise, its a neat climb.

Reminded me of Third Stage at Cactus, but significantly more straight forward. This route is a cruise if you're climbing anything else on the Mural Wall, and no you're not being sandbagged. You can always clip the lower half of the anchor with a draw and pull on that if you're not into the last move. Just admit to French freeing the thing later on.

Face climb the darker rock at the bottom. Move right towards the aerate where the rock turns to more of a tan color. You will better hand holds out on the aerate for the last 10 feet of this climb. The bolt anchors are a bit screwy but they work just fine.

This route is an enjoyable climb. I had no problems clipping the anchors (decent stance from which I could clip either anchor), and I'm average height. I didn't really use the arete and climbed slightly left after the last bolt on nice crimps to reach the anchor.
