Approximately 100-150 ft right of the previous corridor routes is a moderate right arching crack that widens to a chimney after 30 or 40 feet of easy climbing. Ascend this (Call of the Wild) until it is possible to escape out of the chimney onto the pretty pocketed orange face to the left. Continue past a short boulder problem and 3 bolts to the top. Very aesthetic.
Moves: Crack and Face
Descent: Ring anchors
Stays Dry:
Owner: Muir Valley

I did not care for this climb. Moves were somewhat bland.

don't let the "M" on this scare you away. it's fun, and the only section that takes gear is about 15ft of 5.5 crack. also, i don't see how this could be 11a.

The bottom dihedral, the chimney, coming out the roof, the little upper wall . . . All adds up to fun!
