Climb the first 30 feet of Mighty Mouse, through the business and to the obvious horizontal rail. Plug in a few smaller TCU's and break out left into the first crux of Superman. Scratch and paw through small holds and small gear to gain the large block on the arÍte out left (don't bail onto the wall behind you,least you blow your onsight). Get gear and shake while you can, for the seemingly unimposing headwall above packs a steep and pumpy 5.11 runout that you do not want to fly off of. Hence the name!!


Start same as Mighty Mouse.


Traditional lead. Small to medium TCU's and stoppers. Set up natural anchors or traverse 10 feet right to Mighty Mouse anchors.

Great alternate finish to Mighty Mouse. I would give it 12b PG13. There is a bit of a runout after the horizontal band where MM cuts right but it would be a clean fall from there. A #1 Metolius TCU fits perfectly to protect the crux before you gain a HUGE flat ledge where you can rest and get a good piece. I found plenty of good protection on the headwall. Setting up a TR is easy from the MM anchors. Enjoy
