** Start at #31 same as The Hawks Nest. Straight up the open book/groove to a small ledge (5.9R). Belay here. Follow the crack at the right side of the ledge as it trends up and left (5.8). Beta- Pro is difficult on the first pitch. An alternative is to start up Hawks nest then traverse right to the belay ledge using some fixed pins for pro. There may be an old pin at the belay that can be backed up with a tri-cam in the horizontal. The crack on the second pitch will take good gear including a bomber nut placement at the beginning for the belay.

2 out of 5 stars only good times!

Onsight ascent with a 'PONCHE BELAY' at the first pitch ledge, great overhanging second pitch.

I cleaned this route. Lead accidentally started on Mephisto and half way up traversed over to get back on. Made it very interesting.

The second pitch is awesome with some positive laybacking. Sweet but a pity about the first pitch.
