Man, that looks good!

I'd love to get back up there on some new ground - there's nothing like it. That upper buttress was the unrealized Mother Lode of MCR for too long.

Big props to you guys for working the routes out. It looks awesome up there.

Spectacular looking route, Mikey. We pushed it about as far as we could given we were going ground-up, on-sight. I remember being stoked that when we finally did Mother Earth on the 2nd go, I climbed the whole thing, bottom to top, no falls.

Now I wish we had gone up there at least one time with a modern approach and tried to boulder out a dandy. Great you guys did. Middle is a fantastic playground but the routes take a lot of time to establish for many reasons. I can only imagine how much work Mikey and the others put in to get this line on the wall.
