  • Description 

    I thought this route climbed a little nicer than Left Crack. Nice jams, a little short, but steep and interesting.


    This is on the right end of the ledge and right of where Left Crack and Jaguary start.


    While several #2 Friends would be useful, a variety from a #0.5 Camalot work fine. A #0.75 Camalot seemed to protect the most strenuous section very well.

    The correct name for this climb is: Mirage, 5.9 according to the old Erickson guide. FA: Dan Hare and Allen Bradley, in 1979. I rated it as a 5.9+ when I climbed it back in the mid 1980s. I didn't think it was a 10 then....
