Tiptoe around the Mescalito arete to a hanging stance on wires plus the first bolt. Climb the difficult lower wall on layaways with typically poor footholds to reach jugs and easier ground. From a resting place below a bulge. Climb up to the bulge (poor rock) and cross it rightwards to a shakeout, another move up left brings jugs and an easier finish.

Felt bloody hard, much harder than Up the Styx! Feel battered the day after and only had one bolt to bolt before the redpoint so not even that much climbing! God I'm unfit!

Nice route in a great position. There's plenty of climbing on it although never desperate after the lower section.

The perfect climb for a hot day. Seemed very hard at first, but it all falls in to place. Deserving of three stars?

Such a good route despite the dubious rock, just keeps coming all the way to the top.

Need to work out the sequence near the top - long move far right. Rest all is doable.

Cool moves and excellent exposure. My first 7a+, and got it in one session!

Alex Winter 06/Oct/13 Lead RP

First RP after a go bolt-to-bolt and then a quick top-rope of the tricky lower half. Great moves, and trouser-browning exposure. Crumbly in places. I felt a bit wheezy from last week's lurgy.
