Obvious block flaring chimney,head towards the right, up and over to the left detached boulder.Bolted anchor.Dont go off route into the bird guano.

Depending on the season/weather,the whole corner area around mental games is quite dirty from run off.


About 20 yards left from Necessary Evil cave entrance on the Evil Pillar and right next to Hanzo, Sword of Justice.


4 quick draws
Chain anchors

Just a note: Be careful of some chossy rock up towards the top (kinda off route near where you can see the bird poo). Mar 4, 2011

Fun route, but the runoff makes for some slippery spots. Take caution. Jan 11, 2012

I am obviously missing some technique on this one. Couldn't make it past a second bolt. 5.7 Rating? Really guys...Must be some secrets that I don't know about?

Rock is super slick and glossy from water run off. Apr 17, 2016
