This route was more than likely the first route on the wall and done before most climbers today were born. In talking to members of the Alpenbock Club none could recall doing the route so my guess is that it was done by members of the Mountain Club thus it's name. It is rated 5.9 cause at the time that was the hardest possible rating. Could be harder or easier by today's standard - you be the judge.
Start on the left side below a shallow grove and boulder up a series of downward sloping ledges that lead to the shallow grove. Climb the left side as it steepens at the top step right on to a large ledge. Avoid the right side as it consists of some monster stacked blocks. Climb short dihedral system that ends at a lone tree with slings (new as of July 2009).
This route is often wet however it is surprisingly clean if you do not mind some cobwebs.
This is the tenth route on the wall from right to left and is left most route and is approximately 75' from Cecret Lady of the Lake near the far corner of the wall.
Cams, TCUs and a few medium-small nuts.
