Rockfax Description
A wonderful direct version of New Dawn. Take the technical lower wall via some thin moves to meet the bulges of New Dawn. Climb through the bulges and from the ledge above the bulges break out left to the lower-off. © Rockfax

Note to oneself - make sure you sort out the last few moves before the RP attempt and don't presume you can just sketch through them:)

Beta and fitness from new dawn helped a lot. Awesome route, hideous chain clip!

Had flashed new dawn before awhile back. And didn't really have any beta for mescalito. Felt quite like an onsight

First day this year. Forgotten all the sequences so reworked it all, but felt stronger than last year.

Knowledge of New dawn bit from back when I did that, although couldn't remember more than what I could see other people doing. Good route.

Grabbed belay then clipped it, so possibly not quite kosher.... but in mitigation, there was a blizzard blowing into me and my fingers were numb! Maybe do again in better style in warmer weather....

First RP. Worked the moves yesterday then first go after putting the clips in today. Brilliant route.

7th tie-in. Difficulty seemed to oscillate between attempts. My send attempt was on an odd number and it felt really staggered and jolty but I made it. My first 7c+, super route.

Felt absolutely desperate today! Fell off about 10 times.

My fourth time on this route, and the last one was last year. I was really pleased to climb it clean from the ground, with one fall during the big lh pocket swing. Got back on and climbed it clean to the top.

First proper redpoint of the year after a bunch of sessions on it last year, really glad to get it done early in the season. Shaking like a leaf at the belay though, so close to dropping it!
