Dow WilliamsWalker Spur  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2012

Dow Williams

With Rob from Vegas. The 2nd pitch is the good pitch. It is comprised of surprisingly good rock on this section of Mescalito pulling a small roof with a long mellow hand crack. The arete to gain the roof is a bit run out but with two bomber placements. I advise not clipping the directional (2012) bolt above the first belay as I predict the hanger to potentially fail causing a shock load. Rather direct off of the solid belay bolts. The first pitch has the crux move up a thin crack above an ankle busting ledge, but the few moves are well within the grade. The third pitch is sort of a typical 5th class junker to gain a huge ledge where you can down climb to hook into the final three single rope raps on Cat in the Hat.
