Comments: Correct Zach, and I believe it has typo saying its left of UFC when on the drawing is left of WW. There was no fixed gear on that ledge but may have dissappeared many years ago. Id like to add some anchors at both belays at some point and even take it to the rim!?

Comments: When I measured it, I was judging from halfway mark from two 70s, and noted that a single 70 could not make that first rap, however looked like a pair could get you to ground with stretch. Judging from Iou comment, looks like that's what he did if I understand his comment correctly.

Comments: Nice T-shirt day yesterday and had route to ourselves. Few more notes/tips:
Approach: when following the slick rock wash, trail breaks off just before a man-made retaining wall.
Rack: similar to Danny's recommendation above, but I used - offset MCs purp to red, (1).3-.5 C4, (2) .75 C4, (3)1-2C4, (2)3C4, (1)4C4.

P1: nice spot for #3C4 in first hueco off the deck.
P2: save a 1,2,3C4 for the last 30'.
P3: clean as a whistle compared to 5 yrs ago.
P4: thought this had the most junk rock of ... more >>

Comments: Two links each bolt? A single link on each bolt will kink your rope.

Comments: Nice fun line. Couple of wasps in the flake this last weekend. Crux bulge is somewhat sustained with about 4 slightly less than positive jugs. Crux bolt is a tough one to hang the draw on. Heroic finish.

Comments: Anchor biners not there again as of yesterday. Apparently most folks cant handle them so I didn't replace them. I think I have personally added at least 8 biners to this particular anchor. It's almost humorous at this point. However I will say that the chain will eventually wear thin if repeatedly lowered/rapped through, so either add some biners or top out and walk off. This will necessitate some trad gear for short pitch to the top, gardening tools, and shoes for the descent.

Comments: Alright gang, I restored the ledge anchor now having rings to rap/lower off if not wanting to finish with Mulligan Pie. You will have to thread the rope since apparently many folks cant handle fixed biners. Enjoy!

Comments: Once you get established on the headwall the best holds are on your right. The left bolt line is actually the finish of Pie inthe Sky. The ledge anchor for Mulligan Stew has been restored.

Comments: After over 10 years, this thing felt much harder than I remember and would be a great candidate for some serious re-bolting to make more sensible clips. Regardless, the price of admission is a burly move.
