Regular Route (Mace)

Beginning the lead of the fourth (crux) pitch of the Regular Route on The Mace. You chimney into the "interiors" of The Mace and then make your way up a weird crack/groove passing a short but hard (bolt-protected) 5.9+ OW section (December 25, 2005).

I hear this route is at the heart of the most powerful vortex around. My buddy let me lead all the pitches of this ultra classic and boy was i stoked. I eased down the classic ankle smashing jump. Gotta get back on that one someday.

Re: vortex

Yeah - classic line/tower for sure! As good as most "Moab classics". The ankle buster is not necessary anymore - you can rap off the pipe-bomb-shaped summit register container (save the ankles for other climbs in the area).
THanks for your visit.
