Getting busy in the crux area
Access: MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The first pitch is a really fun 5.7 crack on its own. Follow flakes up and left to wide lieback flake, then to a straight in hand crack up to large ledge.

From here you can either rap off a slung pinch point between boulders, or continue to the top of the wall on either Leave it to Beaver, Mutt, Jeff, or Harpoon a Troon.

Mutt follows the left leaning dihedral/undercling (wide pro) to a crux thin crack in a corner and then up face to the top.

It would be wise to bring webbing to reinforce rap stations.


Location 

On the far right side of Morrell's is a detached wall with 2 striking cracks on it. The first pitch of Mutt goes up the left hand crack.

To get to the starting ledge for Mutt and Jeff, climb 30' of 5th class through overlapping flakes.


Protection 

standard rack + some big pieces for both pitches
