Mystery of the Desert, 5.9

6th Pitch- 30m- 5.10/ This last pitch is relatively new and not part of the original route, thus I am not allowing the grade to affect same. However, it is more challenging than other pitches on Mystery of the Desert. Cross the gully to the final headwall. Locate several bolts on this moss laden face. The bolts get you started following a small seam/finger crack that arcs to the left. At times the crack fades to crimps. The ground eases above to a rap station on the right side. Walk to the true summit.
