To find this route, hike up to the base of the Mural Wall. Head left about 50 feet, just past Morrocan Roll. There will be another large corner. On the left face, there is a bolted route that is just right of the arete. This route is "Mother of Invention (10c)". On the right wall is Bobbit Effect. It starts with a bit of a slabby move and heads up on juggy rock to an awkward bulge. It is well-protected.


6 bolts and anchors.

Lots of overhangy moves for a 9, but most of them come equipped with a jug. Pretty stout for the forearm-challenged such as myself, but still fun.

Another great warm up route, easy slab start to a nice bouldery bulge, well-protected.

Great climb! Found a draw with blue and yellow tape on it. If it's yours, let me know!
