Comments: Climbers in blue are on the route McTech Direct.

Climber in green is at the belay at the end of pitch 1 of McTech Arete.

Climber in orange is rappelling the wall. Not recommended due to dangerous rappeller induced rockfall.

Comments: It's easy in my opinion to go wrong for the 5th pitch. At the ledge at the end of pitch 4, Wild Country goes left while Eterna goes straight up.

Comments: If I'm correct, as of August 2015 this was the third bolt line from the left.

This and all other climbs at the crag were incredibly clean. Props to the scrubbers. Having said that some bolts on some routes are installed sideways. Also, the routes on the left side of the crag all have ledge fall potential, sometimes in more than one place.

Comments: In order to get the V2 grade you need to stay high and avoid the good holds a bit lower. Otherwise it's more like a V0 or V0-.

Comments: Skipping the arete is a fun eliminate that bumps the grade up a bit, at least if you're short.

Comments: There are bolted anchors every 35m or so as John says, but they aren't set up for rappels. We left some tat on the last two and made it down, but keep this in mind. Walking off would be a lot faster.

Great climb BTW. First pitch is definitely harder than the rest, which have only short cruxes.

Comments: I may be wrong but I don't think this is Grub Street. I think this is too far to climber's right, and leads to the easy bolted slab routes on the right side of the upper Malamute

Comments: Some beta on the south side descent.

From the summit of the Mescalito we followed a heavily cairned path southwest as per the description on SummitPost. This was extremely easy to follow, and led to a gully that brought us down to the south fork of Pine Canyon, perhaps 200-300 metres up the canyon from the start of Cat in the Hat.

Two rappels were necessary (about 10 metres and 22 metres respectively) from chain anchors. All difficulties were over after these two rappels. Prior to th... more >>

Comments: Nice route with fun and varied climbing. Brought a BD2 and 3 and placed neither. I happily clipped all the bolts, but I see why there might be complaints. I thought it ended in a weird spot. Why stop there?
