Climb thin face just right of Rurpture past bolt. Move right along wide crack to point with over hang(crux) climb past one more bolt to top.


Right of Rurpture, start on thin face and move right to overhang.


2 bolts, pro small to medium

An alternate start is to begin on the arete directly underneath the roof move. Very hard to protect, but only about 5.5 to the 'move'. Nov 20, 2006

I found this climb to be a confidence builder, being a fairly new climber. The thin wall was challenging while the overhang was more scary than difficult. Will take some time before I am ready to lead it due to the fairly high first bolt. Feb 5, 2008

Funnest way to do this is to climb the left leaning crack on the north face of AMC (facing Loafer's Choice). Takes a #3 and 4, if I recall, and is way more interesting than the crimpy slab start. Easy to protect, probably on the order of 5.8+ or so, and good practice for the other crack climbs in the area. Gets you to the base of the arete, probably another cam in before going for the bolt and overhang. Fun! Dec 6, 2009

We decided to do the left to right traverse entrance to Mickey Mantle. It was alot of fun and a recommended way to get to the mantle section.

Don't fall getting to the first bolt. It has a terrible landing and will most likely result in a broken ankle. Nov 6, 2014
