Mirage is a cool, I've done 15 El Cap routes and ready to get off the beaten track on an adventure, kind of route. The climbing is relatively straightforward, but can be grassy and slow in spots. This is a location climb for folks who've climbed a bunch of routes around Lurking Fear and are looking for something different but worthwhile. It is possibly the only bigwall route in Yosemite that you have to do a pitch of down-penjis to start. Mirage is harder than Zodiac but easier than Never Never Land.
