At the top of the 4th class ramp, a #3 Camalot in a crack to the left will keep you from tumbling all the way down the hill...A possibly psychological nut placement right below the first bolt gets you up into position to clip it..

You'll have to downclimb 2-3 feet on a 60m to get to the ground..


To the left of Crab Corner and right of Crab Salad.

To me it seemed easiest to access the Mean Mistreater Wall by descending the gully where "Ego Donor" is (in between the Blazing Fin and the Swim Fin). The gully on the "Party Pooter" side (west side of the Swim Fin) is another option with some downclimbing.
At the bottom go right past the harder climbs to the corner near Faded Rock where the "Crab" climbs are.

I used a #0.3 BD Camalot in the crack then back-cleaned it later. The crack below the bolt is difficult to protect but the bolt is only 1 or 2 moves off the ground. A light rack is nice to have, I placed 2 pieces on the route. May 30, 2011

This is a thoughful route that is definately worth climbing, getting warmed up for other harder stuff in the area and it moves into the shade sooner than the Mean Mistreater wall. The moves to the first bolt are 5.6 for 2 feet so probably don't need protection. The moves under the roof half way up take a 3 inch cam to the right - the left crack is miniscule. A 0.3-0.7 cam likely could fit high up before the belay. No other gear is needed or even available. May 19, 2013
