Warning!!! two loose blocks down low. Needs a bigger pry bar than I had out there. I'll be back with something bigger this weekend.

are you walking all the way from main parking lot or do you have some top access close to the wall?
CLIMBTRAD said on July 31st, 2014
Sadly ya have to walk in. There is a road up top that would make for a 5 minute hike, but the road comes from the dump but the gate is locked most of the time

Hopefully we can work out a legit parking arrangement up there someday.
CLIMBTRAD said on July 31st, 2014
A couple of nice homes are being built at the very end of the road. Overlooking MF. Also I've seen dirtbikes up there. Maybe another way in.

This is a really fun route! Little sandy but will clean up and be really good.

Really cool pumpy route. A huge loose block at the bottom that might blow off. It creaked when I accidently pulled on it. And really dirty at the top. I tried cleaning some of it off, but didn't have a brush.

Had super low expectations and this route more then delivered. Hidden gem.

Left hanger was spinning freely today. Had my partner tighten it down, and should be good for now but better keep an eye on them as the rock up there seems like crap. Could benefit from another quicklink on each anchor if someone wants to donate them.

I didn't bolt this one, not sure if the guy that did will be around. So ill keep an eye on it and add some links and maybe move the anchors to better rock.

Thanks Patrick! If it continues to be a problem a pair of glue-ins should do the trick.

Hard start followed by an easy cruise to the top. Not as fun as Southern Satisfaction next to it.

The left anchor seems like it might need replaced. Both anchors were spinning and I had no way to try to tighten them up. On the left one you could see the rock bulge when lightly pulled on.

Please report to, the anchors site this are in bad rock and could use moved to a different part of rock and glue ins used.
