300m, 6 pitches. East side of Mescalito

conradallen 10/Dec/17 Lead

Abseiled off after the first pitch as in the shad was cold and Donna had bad circulation and cold hands. No fun being cold when its actually very sunny, just not on our route...

Led 1/2 and 4. A-A-P-A-P. Skipped last two pitches due to time/weather. 3rd pitch involves 5.5 boulder move, but is otherwise a ledge. Single 70m rope. The 4th (or 5th) pitch involves a rap down to a ledge 20 feet above the previous belay with a scramble down to it.

MP. Good multi pitch climb. Lead Pitch 1 and 4. Start of pitch 4 is hard for the grade. Abbed off at top of pitch 4 due to strong wind.

What a day. First on the route. C led pitch 1 (5.5 in the guide, felt like 5.6/7). I did the easier but still good pitch 2. C led pitch 3 (5.6 but felt 5.7). Then I led pitches 4/5 in one, taking the 5.6R option - though the climbing on the link sectrion was neither 5.6 (maybe 5.5 at a pinch) nor R (well protected). The crack was a joy, then the delicate run-out finish took me a while to pluck up courage - surely 5.6/7 R? The 4th class scramble then took an age, as we took a wrong turn and ended up on rubble-strewn ledges before retreating and finding a way further right. I fled the final 5.7 chimney pitch, brilliant stuff (despite a brief wrong turn which led into unprotectable territory). Getting to the summit then took longer than expected - "a short scramble" in the guide, but actually quite long and again with non-obvious route-finding. We meant to take the "hikers" route off, but by the time we got to the notch the light was fading and we couldn't see a way up the next summit. Almost resigned to a forced bivvy (and associated massive fine for missing the late entry time from the park), we picked up a line of cairns down the north side, leading to a gully down which we scrambled, with 2 long scary abseils (by now in pitch dark), not knowing if our 50m ropes were long enough (they were, just!), to reach the main creek. Another longer-than-expected scramble out through the massive boulders finally led to the car 17 minutes after our late entry permit expired, but luckily no ticket. An epic day, absolutely brilliant.
