3 out of 5 stars Popular Mechanics

Good route, but not near as special as Ace of Spades. The right corner (Mechanics) just continues with more of the same versus the nice and steep hand sized crack (Ace) on the left wall. For some reason Miramontes has this as a 5.10a, but it is easier than Ace of Spades. Decent approach gets you away from the crowds. Both worth doing. Both share the same start which is really the crux. Fixed rap is over to the left towards the chimney. Gets little to no sun in January. With Chad from CA.
