Replaced anchors.

Description 

Begin on the middle of a large block leaning against the wall. Move up about 25 feet of thin face climbing until you gain a large hold and a good rest. Finish by gaining a sloping ledge, and traversing right along the ledge to a two bolt anchor.

Location 

Just to the right of the Bandito/Three's Company area is a steep slab with a large block leaning against it. There are several bolted routes in this area.

Simple Mind is the second bolted route from the left. It starts straight up the the middle of the block. Additionally, three routes have rusty old homemade hangers, Simple Mind is the middle of the three.

Protection 

Draws, a few longer draws are useful.

As of January 30th 2010 this route has been updated with new bolts and hangers courtesy of the ASCA and the WCCC. Enjoy, and donate to the ASCA for their generosity!
