Description

As noted in the name, a balancy mantle move is the crux in this excellent route.

Start below a left-arching overlap. Smear up to the overlap and clip a bolt above to protect the mantle move. Surmount the overlap and climb the slabby face to the top.

Location

Starts just right of Deprived Child, a short distance from the bottom of the descent gully.

Protection

Four bolts, bolted anchors.

If you need to for whatever reason, it is possible to climb out of Mikey's Mantle to the Pepsi/Deprived Child Anchor Ledge. I'd say it's maybe 5-8 feet of 5.7 climbing above the anchor. Apr 4, 2016

Must do route if you're going to Currahee. Great route, and not very hard. Good for breaking into the 10's on lead. Feb 7, 2008

There is also a "Mickey's Mantle" .10a at Palisades,AL. Any connection? Does Crowder have the FA of that one as well? Feb 4, 2008
