The Mechanic combines face climbing with inconsistent crack moves, for an occasionally heady 5.7 lead.


The Mechanic is found to the left of Flat Battery (the leftmost obvious 5.4 crack) on the central section of the Sugarloaf. There's a lovely walk-off to the north.


Gear is present but rarely a gimme on this climb. A single rack will do. Bolt anchors at the top.
