Comments: This is an exceptional linkup. Sure to become the classic route at the grade on the buttress. Didn't get to climb the Lokey-Righter independent pitch, but it is also possible to simply move around the corner of the arĂȘte (another 10-20' right, through a bush) to the base of the beautiful fist-to-hand crack on P6 on Migs ArĂȘte. Very high quality and stacked with 5 or 6 pitches of 5.9+ to 5.10+.

Comments: As another descent option, it is also possible to rappel Scanners, which is a newer bolted slab route to the right of the old descent gully. This involves three straightforward, single rope rappels on bolted anchors (we had a 70m). From the P2 belay on Q&A, look toward the left shoulder of Middle Mothers, and locate the top anchor on Scanners (about 75-100 feet from the top of the formation). Getting to this anchor involves some exposed 3rd/4th class, but it is not bad.

Super classic line! One... more >>
