|Mr. Meanor Wall
I felt the crux was getting some tricky gear in midway up on a less than perfect stance. Otherwise it protects well and and has a few bolts.
Thin crack near left side of Mr. Meanor wall. Left of larger crack, bolted face up top.
Small to medium cams and nuts plus bolts with chains anchors.

2 bolts can be supplemented with a set of stoppers or cams to 1 1/2"

Hey fellow climbers. I wanted to make a note on this climb after an accident my climber had on this route on friday December 4th 2009. As we know a lot of routes on Mt. Lemmon have a pretty good run-out to the first bolt. With this climb there is a long run out to the first safety bolt. My climber did not know this was a mixed route and started the climb. After making the first 15ft to the fist bolt he realized it was a trad route and despite my orders to come down he decided to attempt the 15 ft run out to the second safety bolt with no gear. (climber ego got int the way). While clipping the second bolt the climber fell 30 ft to the rock below. I was the belayer on the fall and was able to slow him down enough that he didn't die. My climber broke his L1 &L2 vertebrae and his right arm. If the climber was prepared and had studied up (like he said he did) this fall could have been avoided.This is a great, easy, fun climb with the appropriate gear. Bolt and small cams (1-2's will work great)

Very fun and varied moves! Did this TR after climbing Safe Cracker. I would NOT do this without a rack for the crack at the bottom and again maybe one more piece above the 2ed bolt. There are 2 bolts at 30' and 40' on a 60' climb so this is NOT a sport climb. Be safe and don't make the mistake the previous posters friend did.

I struggled trying to place a nut midway up the climb on an awkward stance. Gave up on the nuts and placed a #2 TCU that went in very clean. I placed a few other nuts and cams in addition to the bolts, but the rest were fairly straight forward from good stances.

Maybe something has changed since 2009, and I'm not trying to dismiss what sounds like a very serious accident, but Kelsey's comments do not seem accurate to me. There is no 15 foot runout between the 1st and 2nd bolts. Its closer to 6-8 feet between them. IMO, gear is recommended before the 1st bolt, and somewhat optional on the 5.5 terrain above the 2nd bolt. The gear is a little tricky to place before the bolts, but once I got to the 1st bolt, the rest of the climb felt pretty safe.
