Comments: Just did this today. Used the Haas guidebook, which states that there is a webbing anchor, but unfortunately the anchor had gotten sucked into the horizontal crack (with the rappel anchor) and was unreachable. We wound up doing a sketchy traverse to the webbing anchor over Eclipse (although in a strange location). If it had an anchor, it would be a great route!

Comments: Just did this classic route ! The 5.7 dike traverse move at the top of pitch 1 (or 2 in the Bourdon book) is pretty slick after all of the traffic.

Comments: Dick, i'm so sorry to hear about this tragic accident. I've updated the route description to try to highlight the dangers as well. Most people aren't aware that it's not just you that climbs the route, but all of your porters do as well and they're often ill-equipped. Thanks for posting--my thoughts go out to the family of the climber.
