RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Mickey Mantle has two distinct cruxes, separated by moderate climbing. The first comes in the groove about mid-height. The next....is how the route got it's name I'm guessing. The stone is very good, and the body positioning seems to be very key for the hardest sections. On the upper part, there is what I think is one of the best holds in all of Mill Creek. See if you can find it.
