Comments: Go to the big wall and aid climbing forum and search 2:1. I'm sure it's explained somewhere in there.
or go to my site, elcappanos.com and root around.

Comments: We did clip the top loop on others but not this one for some reason. This is Skot's placement. He weighs 150 or so.
It could be argued that clipping only on the bottom loop would cam the blade into the crack more securely if that part of the crack was thinner. It could also be argued that clipping into only the top could cause the piece to pull straight out.

Comments: Awesome route!
We didn't take a #3 and never missed it. One #2 would be fine also. A good selection of smaller nuts is highly recommended though.
The pitch above the Two Boulder Bivy was little bit dirty, but my partner brushed it as he led it and still on-sighted it.
I wouldn't call the last 12 pitch a +, 12b at the most.

Comments: The first pitch is nice but that's about it as far as quality goes. The Monkey traverse is thick moss covering crumbly rock.

If that is your definition of "alpine rock" then have at it. Otherwise, go somewhere else.

Comments: Oh yeah, they were just about the only game in town back then! When you think about it now, and look at the current harness, it really is hard to believe anyone though this idea was any good.

Comments: An Excellent route. All the bolts are pretty modern and good as of 4/7/14.

Comments: I certainly don't think the traverse under the roofs is .10a, it seems far more difficult than that. I'd call it easily .10c.

Comments: I dislocated my collarbone in the early 80s and it wasn't set correctly. It sticks up a bit.
