Not until you get down there and solo them Gucci.
Besides, still never seen or heard of the center one soloed and Tony is the only one I've heard of that's soloed the left one.

Sorry about picture quality....Taken from video shot with Iphone on 2/21/13
Edit: Because this is supposed to be about route beta: I've always treated this face as a slabby bouldering face and never rated nor picked any definitive lines although I and others have bouldered the bolted lines that exist on the face as well as traversed at differing heights etc. But if I had to rate anything I've done on it, nothing is harder then VO. And I'm glad there are new moderate routes for folks as there's not much at Mickey's that are easy.

everything on that face has been soloed by me and many others not that it's really worth writing or bolting about.....

Oh really?

Do tell!

It tends to get pretty foggy on that section of coast, if you catch my drift...

karodrinker...Sorry, I just read the mast head of the route. "Egg Arete Mickey's Beach 5.6". I was referring to the west side climb of the arete which is called "Egghead". Good job....

Wstmrnclmr,
shoot me an email, I have info on the two routes you asked about on the hillside facing slab. Also, I'm curious about what you know of those routes.

Egghead much easier now because slides a few years ago have filled in the base of the climb almost burying initial crux (rated 11b at the time but most thought boulder problem start to be more like 12a) boulder problem which was the best part of the route and which has made bolt placement closer to ground thus ground fall potential. More like 11a/b now.
Edit: Does anyone know who put up the newer climbs on the Northwest face? everything on that face has been soloed by me and many others not that it's really worth writing or bolting about.....

Great route! thoughtful and daring, with definite ground fall potential near the top of the route.
