Found on the left side of a prominent arete, immediately right of Muy Enfermo. A sizable boulder is immediately underneath the route. Climb the west (left) side, w/o grabbing the arete. Turn the arete above the 4th bolt and finish on the last 3 bolts of D.D.M., the route around the corner. Strenuous, overhung climbing at first, easing off considerable once the 4th bolt is reached. A fun climb.

Descent Options:

Rap/Lower off the anchor. No walk off.

4 out of 5 stars Good climb, but a little contrived.

Got this on the second or third try. As usual with Mentmore, the key is finding the hidden holds. Strenuous start, but not really too bad at all. A little contrived though, since you're not supposed to use the arete until above the 4th bolt. NOTE: if you want to clean the draws on rappel, I'd suggest bringing stuff for an autoblock. The route leans and overhangs, making it hard to clean with only one hand.
