A super fun route on good rock. The lack of a normal finish costs a star but it's still great fun.

Easy climbing past 2 or 3 bolts leads to a boulder problem that's not too bad. A good rest on hand jams follows, then a move off a pocket and undercling leads to a block. The business starts here. A fun boulder problem on an undercling and 2 slopey sidepulls leads to a jug. Another boulder problem leads to a reinforced jug. Reach for the hidden pocket and select your finish. Head left to the chossy but cool dihedral (Leftover Message) or head right on jugs for the original finish (The Message). The Messenger continues outward, pulling the roof.


Shares the start holds with the Burn. Climbs out the middle of the Message cave.

I thought the continuation of the route was called "The Oregon Message" and was a 5.14a by Todd Skinner?
I found that out after getting on the whole thing in spring of 1995 (or about) without a guidebook and flailing my way up it pretty hard. Cool climb though!

I would have to double check but I think it is called The Messenger and was FA'ed by Jerry Roberts.

Yes, Jerry did the FA of the Messenger. Not sure Skinner hit the deep south too much. RIP, check those harnesses folks...
