Finally a warm-up morsel for Stuffed Wolf. Don't expect much, but it will get the blood flowin'. 70 feet of Mouse Meat wanders up the left side of Profile Wall. Steeper than you might expect.
Crumbly in spots, and borderline choss in others. It may clean up after several laps. There are some fun and memorable moves on it.
Open with rising slab traverse to a small overlap. Good holds and better rock lead you close to the left arete. Follow your nose as the route steepens with some good crack features and up to the chains.
Starts from a two bolt belay about 20 feet left and down the ramp from Stuffed Wolf. USE EXTRA CAUTION TO NOT SLIP OFF THIS RAMP LEDGE. Possible to rap from this anchor about 60 feet to ground.
10 bolts and two bolt lower-off with fixed biners. Use caution lowering back to the ledge.
Belayer should either wear a helmet, or get the hell out of the way of any droppings. This is another reason I put the belay slightly right of the climbing line.

This line needed quite a bit of TLC. I spent like 4 hours yesterday cleaning, primping, and trundling. Be extra careful if I missed something. I will give it a run when it gets a warmer to make sure it's safe.

This climb will serve its purpose (a warm up) once it really cleans up. Feet were pretty scaly, and there were still some loose blocks. We reefed one off today, about the size of a brick. The movement at the top was def fun, but down low it was hard to read.
