Description 

Not really a new route so much as a link-up of two existing classics (Mickey Mantle and The Fiend), but it's also the easiest face route to the top of the wall. It wouldn't surprise me if this has been done before, but I've never seen or heard of it anywhere.

Climb Mickey Mantle to the 2nd bolt, move left to join The Fiend at it's 3rd bolt, and then follow that route to the top. A harder and better protected variation can be done by heading left a little more after the 3rd bolt and clipping one more bolt for the 5.9 finish of The Fiend.


Protection 

3 bolts, chain anchors
