The Mr. Meanor Wall receives early morning shade but is otherwise sunny. The rock tends to be solid with decent friction. Be aware that 40 to Life and St. Valentine's Day Massacre are the only sport routes on this cliff and even then there is debate. These routes see a lot of traffic and parties frequently move these ropes between the anchors to toprope the traditional lines.

Topropes and The Latrine do not actually reside on the Mr Meanor Wall proper nor are they actually routes in my opinion. These two "routes" are located directly in front of the Mr. Meanor Wall, directly across from Jailhouse Rock.

Getting There

Follow the dry riverbed past the Dragon Tower and Guard Tower. When you reach the Cell Blocks bypass the riverbed drop-off using the trail up and to the left. The wall is on your immediate left.

It's deja vu all over again, heard somebody hit the deck yet again on one of these mixed routes.

Please don't try to lead these as sport routes, or at least be aware that if you do, at some points you'll be essentially soloing. The chance of your belayer being able to run back 10 feet through a boulder field to keep you off the ground is negligible. Nov 30, 2016

While the incident you mention was possibly due to the fact the climber was climbing a mixed route without any gear, he fell from the spot where you would place your first piece. Also worth noting is that he didn't hit the ground, he landed on a small ledge about 4 feet off of the deck and broke his leg. I'm thinking the route Mr Meanor might be at least PG-13 and that people should honestly assess their skills and risk tolerance before attempting to lead it.

Also as a PSA, if you see anyone climbing these routes without gear, please speak up (and loudly!) Dec 7, 2016

I'm the said climber that took the whipper recently. I didn't hit a ledge, I think I hit rock wall in an odd angle and fractured my left ankle.

Anyways, yeah bring a set a cams before attempting. Dec 8, 2016

PLEASE PEOPLE, stop just hopping on routes thinking you can climb them. Look at them before you go up. If you don't see bolts then it is probably a mixed or trad route! It is a tad late to rant but in 2016 of November I saw some new climbers just pointing and climb routes without knowing what the route entailed. Feb 15, 2017
