Comments: Owen- Some of it we used a lot of, most of it we didn't use most of the time. The route only took one screw but many pins, some cams, nuts and of course the odd picket.

Comments: Did this route for the first time today. I found the 10a pitch quite sustained. But for the experienced 10a leader, four or even three green .75 cams is overkill. there are places for other pieces when you need them. Oh, and you can rap with one 60 meter from the top of the third pitch.

Comments: By the way, I'm not sure I agree with the description. I made it past the roof yesterday. So I just pulled the roof, got to the sloping crack, and fell off. It was about a 40 foot fall. But unless you fall low and completely sraight down, you won't hit the ledge. It isn't the cleanest fall, but it doesn't get much cleaner deep water soloing.

Comments: Was it wet when you climbed it Robert? Cause that can affect the grade significantly.

Comments: I cut left before the "roof" and had to run it out 40 feet. The hard parts were protected mostly.

Comments: Did this route but we took a more direct variation a couple pitches before the crux. Anyone know what the off-hands crack to the left goes at?

Comments: I think that off-width is definitely protectable with something smaller. A number 2 or 3 might work.

Comments: I found the fourth pitch to be enjoyable. The gear is "just good enough". Also, the grade is just a tiny bit soft if you're used to Index leads.
