Rock Area Index / Humphrey's Ledge / Mischief (5.5)
Directions:  Walk left along the cliff and follow the alternate trail that takes you to the Geriatric Walls. Continue about 150', watching for a steep, dirty gully, adjacent to a large fallen pine. (At present, there is a fixed rope in this gully, which is used, to gain access to the traverse that weaves upward to the tops of “Rumble in the Jungle”, and adjacent routes.) About 25' to the east (right) of the “Relapped” belay, find a moderate slab, broken by short steps. Belay from a small tree at the base of this slab.
Description: unavailable
    Pitch 1: Starting on very clean rock, climb upward, tending left, finding good placements at adequate intervals, and protect with small wires, camming units or tri-cams. This slab ends in a short headwall, protect in the clean right-facing corner, climbing good edges to reach the junipers. Scramble 4m to reach an 8" hardwood, directly above the finish of “Relapped”, and belay there (120').

Gear: standard rack
Descent: Rappel 30 m to the start of Relapped
