Mescalito (7a)

Trentino, IT

Mescalito stands out in particular due to its steepness and perfect rock. This route was opened in the early 80s from below, and is quite rightly considered one of the great classics around Arco. Despite the many ascents, the rock is consistently rough and offers varied climbing. A highlight awaits the repeaters on the sixth pitch: the expansive roof can be free-climbed (6bA0 or 7a). An absolute tip on behalf of the Vertical-Life team! Gear: 12 quickdraws, 70 m single rope or 60 m half rope (allowing for a carefree rappeling down to the roofs), with medium cams long runouts can be avoided, sling.
