DescriptionThis is the most basic summit pitch on the Mechanical Man and is worth doing. The rock is pretty good, but straightforward protection is lacking in a place or two.
Work up the series of corners as described below and up over the summit to the belay/rap anchors on the West side of the summit spire.
LocationThis can be approached vie the ledge atop Tier Three as arrived at upon approaching the rock via the backside, or from atop a route that ascends Tier Three.
To get to this pitch from the standard ledge, look back East through the 'tunnel' of rock at the base of Fluid Dynamics and walk/scramble through to the East side, arriving at the open ledge near 2 belay bolts and a stack of large blocks at the base of a series of corners. Climb up the corner system, staying left when in doubt, place gear in a horizontal overhead at a roof cap of lighter rock, and move right into a second system, then up to the top on wider cracks (5" gear to sew it up, but not absolutely necessary).
