Midway through the difficulties on Mantlepiece, 5....
Start by climbing up onto a large shelf. After clipping the 1st bolt move left up onto a sloping ledge and move right in order to clip the 2nd bolt. Make the crux moves up and to the right to gain the left leaning groove, and the 3rd bolt.
Continue up the groove to clip the 4th bolt and then continue up with the last three bolts of Bottom Feeder.
Another option on this route is to cut left after the third bolt to finish up Mantle Marathon.
10 feet right of Mantle Marathon.
7 bolts, ring anchors

The moves at the crux are somewhat reachy, which might make it slightly harder for shorter people. Clipping the 3rd bolt and 4th bolt with a longer draw is advised to cut down on any possible rope drag.
