Bug-Powered Ascent of Mescalito

This looks interesting. A solo of Mescalito on a diet of bugs. Supposedly they are rich in protein. . .

I saw that. Couldn't really figure out if it was something that she 'wanted to do' or 'felt compelled to do internally to make a statement.'

More bug power to her.

dig the pics...

I wonder if she can do anything with silverfish like a super-mini crawfish boil. It might require a lot though. I heard you are supposed to plan on 5 pounds per person for the crawfish.

She wants bugs?   

Forget that clean hammered Burton line and she should go do a First ascent.

Now that would be proud, leave the deck with NO food and only eat what is found in the dirty cracks encountered.

I swear she would have been able to survive on a few of my routes.....Maybe even put on a few LB's with the abundance of grubs, silverfish, frogs and such on a few choice pitches.

LOL

I think Mucci has a great point about not selecting a trade route. I don't like the concept of munching on Silverfish that have been making the rounds of Sickle Ledge, Camp VI, Alcove and other well-travelled spots.
