Despite the name, I found the protection to be reasonably good on this thin face route. To descend, rappel 90 feet from a ledge. It is in the sun all day.


4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap

2nd and 3rd bolts are pretty close together. The dangerous R is really only to and after the first bolt (groundfall). After the third bolt trend left to meet up with the last bolt of Mickey Mantel and continue to the lower 2 bolt anchor of Mickey Mantel.

i'm pretty sure its called "Howards 50 Footer" Because howard judson was climbing mickey mantle and a hold broke so he took a 50 footer and they named that climb to immortalize his fall
