Description 

This is a discontinuous line piecing together a few features to the left of Crack, Variation to For Love of Mothernot, and For Love of Mothernot that is kind of fun and lies on the left side of the second buttress of Mt. Thorodin in Golden Gate Canyon State Park. It could be considered a variation to For Love of Mothernot, but it is also pretty different.

From the staging area for the CMC Route, scramble along a 3rd to 4th class ramp heading up & left as for For Love of Mothernot. After about 60 ft, find a belay at the base of a large tree (2 x 48 in slings to girth hitch).

Traverse about 40 feet left on easy terrain to some flakes. Move up an insecure couple moves to a pretty undercling. Traverse left along this undercling to a wide crack. Lieback up the wide crack with a good edge in the back. Continue up until you find a 10 foot traverse left on face holds. Then move up the slab to the belay ledge with 2 bolts. This traverse and slab section has no gear.

Protection 

Single set of cams to #4.5 Camalot, wires.
