Description

I think this could be the best moderate on Casino cliffs and a great fun route. The holds and movement are really fun with a great roof move added for spice. Nothing is bad about this route unless you don't do it, have fun!

Location

This route you can not miss, it is directly in front of you where the main trail meets the Casino cliffs wall. Obvious large holds on crack down low is Mickeys!!!

Protection

6 bolts will get you up this beauty to the fixed anchors and your rappel. Well protected.

This route gets a lot of action. TR city for groups. Please be considerate and hang draws on the anchors for all sessions. The fixed anchors at Jacks are showing much wear from 15 years of high traffic.

Thank you. Mar 21, 2007
Not bad, but by no means great. Without the ears, it's not even "Mickey." Mar 21, 2007
I'm a relative beginner (climbed maybe 15 outdoor routes), and I thought this was a pretty fun route! I enjoyed the side holds while moving up and around the roof! Certainly not the most challenging 5.9 I've done... bun a nice climb! Oct 19, 2008

Thought this was easier than "I am pokey" 5.8 moves are a little bit more powerful, but all the holds are huge and obvious, and lots of rests. stretch from 3rd to 4th bolt seemed sketchy from the ground, but allows you to work through the roof before clipping, and have a comfortable stance. thought it was a great route.

Did this on gear 6/2/13 for giggles. The bottom went easily but the top was a bit harder to protect without endangering the route should something break the rock. An okay #3 Camalot around to the left in the larger crack protected the last moves with the least potential for destroying the route. Jake Croft did it mostly on tricams only, clipping the last 2 bolts. We're calling it Mickey Goes to Eldo... just kidding. Jun 5, 2013

Climbed on a foggy morning in 30 degree weather. Fun route, but whomever went up it last, wearing boots and leaving mud on bolts and holds, made it rather annoying. I cleaned some off, but unless it gets some rain expect some dirty feet and holds if you go to climb soon. Dec 2, 2013
