BETA PHOTO: S. Face of the Mental Block zoom in to see route ...


This is a fun way to get lots of easy mileage. Start at the bottom right side of the South face and angle up left until you can top out on the curving crack. The ground follows you up as you move left, so you are never too high off the deck. And if you can make it past the crux move, the top out will be easy (5.4). You could also go straight up the right side, but that would be better as a top rope (5.11 ish)...
The crux is moving left behind the tree to gain a tiny left angling ramp. The tree is sort of spotting you at this point, but would probably cause an ankle injury if you had an unexpected slip.


This is on the Mental Block. It lies across the carriage road from Bunny and Retribution. Drop down from the carriage road on the South face to the lowest point by the SE arete.


not a great landing, just be careful not to fall
