Jerry rapping Mickey Mantle

Big Rock is currently closed to climbing.



Mickey Mantle climbs the center of the Sundeck. Start up the shallow seam about 10’ right of the prominent dark streak, about 10’ left of the first modern bolt line (Sun King, 5.11a/b). The seam allows no real protection but the climbing is easy and you can sling the wide horn of the mantle ledge. Continue up the face past one bolt to the left-facing flake. The flake protects well with a small cam. Follow the flake to easy slab climbing that leads to the anchor, shared with Top Rope. Rappel to the Sundeck to descend.


Center of the wall, between the old bolt line on the left and modern bolts on the right.


1 bolt, pro to 0.5", 2 bolt chain anchor

Always enjoyed this climb. Really glad that old handmade aluminum hanger was replaced. As Bill indicated a small cam will protect the moves past the flake (or a pink Tri-cam), but it's still a bit runout to the anchor.
