In the introduction of Daniel Duane's book El Capitan: Historic Feats and Radical Routes, he writes:

"If Salathe was one of the three great pioneering routes on El Capitan, Mescalito belonged in my mind to the same family as Pacific Ocean Wall and Sea of Dreams, climbs so committing they could apparently do dangerous and unsettling things to your mind."

Very well said.

I did that once. Great White Book in Tuolomne. She did fine until the final traverse left from the top of the book. She was paralyzed with fear and hanging on, afraid to move. I had to tied her off at the belay, unrope, solo down to her and encourage her across.

I still got laid that night. Despite the terror and the spewing of tears and snot.

Please don't use that kind of language. It offends my sensibilities.
