Mental Games Apple Valley


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).

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