This is a good low angle climb up to a great ledge.
Pitch 1) Climb up the offwidth crux to a flat area and belay with gear from blocks under a chimney.
Pitch 2) Continue up the chimney, also a crux, and jam your way to the platform and the belay bolts.
This climb can be done in one long pitch if desired but most do it in two. The flat ledge at the top is an awesome place to hang out for a while. It also is the first belay for The Hand Me Down .10a
Rappel with two ropes.


This is the right facing corner just past and down from Mental Block.


Gear to 4.5 inches plus slings. Bolted rappel anchor on top.

The 5.9 option for P1 is interesting, though a bit dirty. Climb an awkward lieback jam that quickly becomes an bit of an offwidth (Bring a #5 Camalot to slide up this part). I found it best to stay left-side in and you find some features on your right to work with. Continue up to where it levels out and thin lieback around the corner to gain the belay to start P2. Gear at the lieback is a bit suspect.

The P2 OW crux can be protected by pushing a #5 Camalot, though it is pretty unstable. A pushing a #6 Camalot would make that section very comfy.
