Mescalito has gone clean at C3+. To my knowledge it first went without pins in 97 w/ a lot of fixed gear on the route. The FCA party said to bring some #3 coper heads (in case fixed ones blow) and possibly a cheater stick.
I havent heard much about other clean ascents so I dont know how realistic it would be. Make sure to throw some pins in the bag.
Enjoy the climb. It looks like a beautiful part of the Capitan.

Dude, when are you blasting off? We'll watch for you. I'm in the Valley arriving Thursday May 18, staying til June 9 or so. The more people you tell, the more committed you become, and the less likely you are to back off!
