Can this be most favorite problem too? Find the Mental Block about 100 yards north of the Eliminator Boulder guarded by the smaller Tiger Rock, amidst some trees downhill from a break in the ridgeline. Standard climbs incuts and crimps just left of Pinch Overhang. Grab a left sidepull, a right underclingy sidepull and crank up a couple of moves, then pull the insecure mantel off without becoming one with bushes, rocks and your spotters. Beautiful and thrilling moves.
Spot and pads for sure sure, unless you have some sort of deathwish. It's called mental block for a reason - the topouts.
