Description 

Many folks have challenged friends to pull the mantle in their street shoes and it is quite challenging.

Locate Child's Play, look right 5 feet and locate the small ledge 6 feet up, mantle onto the ledge with the poor feet. Continue up easy ground and join another route to find the top of the cliff.

Location 

Locate Child's Play, look right 5 feet and locate the small ledge 6 feet up, that is the start of this route.

Protection 

None until you join another climb.

This route is pretty fun. It is normally set up at a TR. You can lead it however by leading it it becomes 5.8 R because you dont get any gear until the 20 foot mark and you climb the crux before you get gear.
