There's a route listed in the Stone Mountain Tree Ledge approach climbs called "Mitchell's False Start." I can't find this in the guidebooks, and I wonder if it's real, or maybe someone's alternate name for the Block Route.

Anybody know about this mystery route?

Sax, from the sound of the discription I think they may mean the left facing corner of U Slot, U Slot is actually on top of that corner, thats all I can figure.

I know this is a really old post, but I read somewhere long time ago that it is what is now known as "dirty crack" located to the right of entrance crack. Most would climb mitchells thinking it was the great arch since it looks very similar in its features.
