Access Issue: Climbing restricted due to tourist safety
Details
ACCESS NOTE: Please note that the forest service has restricted climbing for any routes past the area of Red Wagon (just left of the Trinity Cracks) due to tourist safety. Local access groups are working to get this restriction lifted.
Description
Mint Julep is a nice line that probably doesn't get as much attention as it deserves. The start is a little wandering and not all that distinct in terms of crack, which may be the reason. But the upper part is challenging and enjoyable.
Initial wandering on the face and discontinuous cracks to the right of Morning's Morning gets you to the clean corner above. Finger locks and technical face climbing will get you to the top.

I think John Fleming might have actually had the first lead on this and it would have been in '78. edit - yes, this was a Fleming lead fur shure.
My recollection is that some of the smallest wires are very handy up at the exiting moves.
Then there are the two Grossman routes to the right of this climb. One is just right and quite exciting, the next is the left side of Orange Out direct. Sorry, can't recall the names.

RIght where the crack opens up for good hand jams. About the middle of the climb. My partner and I were both stung while climbing. There is a flake that you can use to avoid sticking your hand in the nest but those f**kers still get angry when youâ€™re hanging around their front porch. Aug 20, 2018
