<< Tremelo < The Minimum  |  Mescalito > New Dawn >>

A worthwhile sustained line extending The Minimum in to the upper section of Mescalito via an approach to the New Dawn bulge from the left. Finish as for Mescalito.

I'd wondered where /The Minimum/ had gone. What was wrong with the old 7a? or did it stop when it got hard?

Minimum should be back in the database, it certainly gets far more ascents than "Minimum Fuss" with very good sustained climbing at 7a (Or should that be 7a+??)
Kevin Stephens - 20/Aug/06

I agree Kev. The Minimum should be back in the database, at hard 7a.
andy farnell - 24/Aug/06

Minimum Fuss is only 7c. No where near as hard as New Dawn and less pumpy (even with Mescalito finish)
Dave Cross - 18/Sep/06

I agree with Dave, a good sustained 7c, top of the grade but not 7c+, its about as hard as New Dawn
