Location: NV : Red Rock : Pine Creek Canyon : Mescalito : Dark Shadows (Full) (5.8)

Comments: There are several descent options off Mescalito- two that I know of off the north side, one off the south. The north side options are either double 60m rappels (or what you did with a 70m) or a walk-off with no rappels (tricky, but doable- aim for the second fork high in the drainage- you come down about 150' up the left hand side of the fork).

The south side is pretty well cairned as I understand it- Branch Whitney and crew use it for their hikes, so it may be doable with no rope or a single ... more >>

Comments: Did this route with a single 70m and comfortably rappelled down to the mid-station right of the route and then to the ground. I didn't see an anchor out left and considering the rightward traversing nature of the route, I'd be surprised that an anchor out left would be safer than the one straight down from the top of the route.

I will, of course, defer to locals on this one- I can only relay my own experience on this route.

Comments: rope stretch and the length of your anchor kit aside, when a route is marked 100', it is usually done so to indicate a 60m is sufficient for lowering/rappelling, you should be fine.

Comments: You actually never spend time in the wash on the approach to the Fringe- rather, you stay on a trail on the hillside to the right in this photo, dropping into the wash only to cross it up onto the slabs on the other side.
