Description

Mirage climbs the righthand margin of a beautiful west-facing wall of orange rock just before reaching the Golden Gloves area. There are two obvious bolted lines on this wall -- Mirage is the right; Brazen Serpent is the left -- the two routes share the first bolt.

Start at the center of the wall and climb up and right to the first bolt. Continue up to the obvious undercling below the roof. I recommend placing a cam here (there are spots for blue & yellow TCUs as well as a 0.5 Camalot) with a long runner to alleviate the pressure of not blowing the second clip. Undercling right and head up a blocky section of rock to a second clip. From here pull up and onto the steep face/arete above (crux, several ways to do it) and continue clipping bolts up the thin, tricky arete to bolted anchor.

Protection

10 draws and a finger-sized cam or two.
