Description 

Crux moves on all three pitches for different reasons. On the first pitch, it is all about clearing the small roof. For the second pitch, there is a tricky start to get into the right arching crack. The third pitch is a bit difficult to protect due to the crack shape, but it can be done safely.

Location 

The next route to the left of Black Death, on the way to One for the Road.

Protection 

Tapers, cams from Metolius 1 to BD 6 (for anchoring).

Went to do this on 4/12/14 and in the crack just below the roof bee's have set up a hive there. I got within 15' of it to be sure. I am not a person fazed by bee's like a lot of folk but I didn't feel safe going there. Considering the quality of Mouse Tracks and Mouse Trap, there are other good trad routes to take a first time follower or have a chill lead in the McD's range that you don't have to worry about stirring up a bad day by trying to set gear and climb through their home.
