Description

Not done as often as Mental Standard or Cornerlock since the landing zone is a bit smaller, tucked amidst some small boulders. Probably a height-reach dependent grade of around V3+ for those around my height (5'10"), just a touch easier than Standard and Cornerlock. Grab the pinch with your left, a sidepull with your right, get your feet on the wall and fire up to the layaway above. Work the feet for the reach to the top and pop off another mental mantel.

Protection

Like the rest of the Mental block problems, plus rotating falls if you come off - so a pad stuffed ontop of the rocks and spotters are nice.

It has been started from a sit. Another fun Rotary problem. Not sure on the name or grade. Feb 3, 2009
Does anyone know if this problem has been started from a SDS from the right low crimp and sidepull and moving into the layback and pinch? If so, what is it named and the grade? Apr 29, 2004
