Description:

Look for the prominent, right-facing inside corner near the right (east) end of the wall. Tres Amigos is the bolt line on the LEFT wall (Not Suitable for Pregnant Women, also 11a, is the bolt line on the right.) Pull the tricky, bouldery start to a large ledge about 10 feet up. Then crimp your way up the slightly overhanging wall to the top. Can be completed to the right or left of the bolt line; both are roughly equivalent and pumpy. The dihedral on the right is Off-Route! One of the better, more sustained routes at Mentmore.

Descent Options:

Traverse and rap the route immediately to the right (2 cold shuts), or walk off to the right.

4 out of 5 stars nice and sustained

One of the better 5.11s at Mentmore, this route has a hard start and a continuous pumpy finish. All on good rock, and well-bolted. Recommended, especially on hot afternoons when it'll be in the shade.
