Minesh leading up "Stewed Prune".

Description 

A 5.8++, this route probably feels a little harder than the grade. Starts left of center of the crag, on the left side of the gap next to Cyclic Loader. The route starts at the gap and wanders left, then straight up to the anchors. There is large pine tree behind you as you are climbing. You can start on the left side face for a 5.10c variation.


Protection 

6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Good moves on good quality rock. Crux is after the third bolt at the bulge with little feet but never fear--very positive hand holds await!
This climb also has some funky anchor setup with two cold shuts but one is placed much higher than the other. Needs some hardware to help equalize and make it easier to clean as well as keep the existing hardware from wearing.

Thanks to a hardware donation from NMCRAG, the anchors on this route were replaced in July 2007 with quality Fixe Sport Anchors.
