To the left of Mystery of the Desert. 3 pitches -- 2 pitches of perfect, sustained, 5.10 slab, followed by a 3rd face/crack pitch that is as good as they come. I followed Scott up as he finished bolting the 3rd pitch, then went back a couple of weeks later for the redpoint. This climb is a must! Take two ropes for the rap-off. Another one of Scott's contributions to an already amazing area.

Descent Options:

double ropes

5 out of 5 stars Fun line, would do it again!

We took a rack for Mystery of the Desert but this looked far better. Starts on the arete and the moves on the roof of P2 are a stopper. Last pitch's awkward shallow crack was very safe. Great route.

Just as stellar as bighighaz says. Pretty hard for 10b, I'd give p's 1 and 3 maybe a 10c with one move of 11a (easily french freed) on p2. It's got tons of bolts and is a really good route for those wanting to work on their slab technique and push the numbers. This routes combined with Mystery makes a good day. I'm pretty sure I can get pitches 1 and 3 clean (I fell on both), but that one move on p2....Steep, potato chips for the hands and super high step to a minuscule, slopy left foot...Harder than 10b for sure, but right at a bolt. Kudos to the FA. Those looking for an adventure route should quit their bitchin' and look elsewhere (go give Ides of Middlemarch a run). EDIT: That was in November, just went back and led p2, which went clean! Maybe it wasn't 11a, or maybe my foot just happened to stick... Still had to hang on p3, even though I followed it this time, so it's still a hangdog.
