Face right of Mr. Meanor.


Oops, had this and "Off Scott Free" switched. This one does start in front of the tree, just left of the bolted line.

Route description sounds more like 'Off Scott Free' to me. I believe 'Mug Shot' is the route to the right of this one and starts in front of the tree. Both are fun routes, however this one (starting at the bowl shaped feature) is slightly more difficult than the one starting by the tree.

Mugshot starts at the tree. The route with the round dish was done by Kevin Carmichael and I will get the name. I think the bottom is 5.9.

I thought the bottom portion prior to the first bolt was a fantastic technical section. I'm not sure why the rating is so low...unless everyone is using the rock on the left to start from. With the rock I'd give it a 5.9-, without the rock a 5.10a/b.
Either way I think that the description needs to be a bit clearer.

3 bolts a small nut and fun climbing. Plus the start gives it some interest.

2 cruxes. One right off the ground and the 2ed at the bulge 2/3 of the way up. Fun side-pulls and lots of small crimping, perfect feet the whole way. 1 small nut or cam placement between the 1st and 2ed bolt. Short route at about 30'.

Best gear is #1 (blue) TCU left of the block and #13 BD stopper (red) in the slot at the top of the bulge. Both are BOMBER! As good as bolts! Can also get a small nut above the 3ed bolt but the energy/time is better spent running it out and being sure to get to the chains.
