Me,climbing The Head on the FA of Mushroom Kingdom

Description 

Climbs the crack between The Head and the main wall. The top of the head is about half way up the wall, where there is a fixed pin to rap from. Note: never trust your life to a single piece of fixed gear. Back up rappels when necessary.

Beautiful stone!

Location 

Left of center of the main wall above the talus field, climb the right side of the huge Head feature.

Gear through #4 Camalot

Did this route this past saturday, Heres a little run down, Very loose rock throughout the route (like most of the area). I think the rating is a bit sandbagged could be a grade higher since holds are always breakings away. There is a single piton, runner and biner (probably from 1950) up there. Not to sure on when that piton was added but its pretty bomber but the runner and biner could be horrible.

Route itself was good (besides loose rock) easy gear placement, would say 10b/c if I was to grade it. 60/70 ft

Just to clarify, the piton was placed during the FA in 2008. Since the whole capstone that it was placed in was deteriorating at the time (now five years ago), I wouldn't trust it without inspection and backup.
