On the 11th Dec, Will Mayo and Andy Tuthill made a ground breaking ascent of Mean Streak. Here Mayo takes up the story:
"My friends and I have looked at it over the years and wondered each time we ventured up into the Omega amphitheatre... Turns out, it goes--and it's one Mean Streak (WI6 M7, 450'). We climbed it in three demanding pitches (P1: WI6 M7, 140'; P2: M6+, 100'; P3: M6+, 210'), each requiring heavy ironwork and our full attention. We carried a full rack of pins, single rack of nuts, single rack of cams, a few short screws and 70-meter ropes. We climbed the three sustained pitches traditionally: ground-up, free, onsight, and without leaving a stitch of fixed protection behind."
