I've climbed Cat in the Hat twice, but never gone to the summit of Mescalito. The first time was a bit more involved, as my partner and I had no idea what we were really doing.

The second time was a quick jaunt with SP member dunsum after we finished up Olive Oil and had some spare time in the afternoon.

In town on business, I climbed Cat in the Hat with Bob of JHMG to the summit of Mescalito. I led pitch 1 and the fantastic pitch 4. After the 6th pitch we climbed up 500' of 3rd & 4th class terrain to a final 5.7 pitch, then another 150' of 3rd & 4th class to the summit. Downclimbed and rapped the route of ascent.

Going to the summit makes this III+ 5.7'ish.

Great climb!

One of my favorite class 3 scrambles in Red Rock. We climbed up via Fern Canyon (North Fork of Pine Creek) and descended via Mescalito Fork and the South Fork of Pine Creek.

Headed out to Vegas just for one day to catch the Sisters of Mercy, and squeezed in a climb with Donnie before the show. A bit chilly in the shade, but nice in the sun... and consistently excellent rock and wonderful views. Steep, but good holds everywhere. Great fun.

Ran out of time to tag the summit, so we ended up rapping the route.

This was a fun climb. Lot of people on the route that day. Have some video of a climber at the crux on the last pitch. I took it from the trail. Looks scary!

Climbed the standard six pitch route. Great day climbing with Johanna. Unfortunately, we got stuck behind a very slow moving group. Ended up rapping and hiking out in the dark. So much for those plans to climb Dark Shadows.

Outstanding technical climbing on the first few pitches, leading to classic "desert peak" scrambling for the final half of the climb. Unique position. With Tom Scott.
