Comments: I also soloed this in June '04, when it was mostly ice-covered rock with some nice solid ice sections. In those conditions, I'd also say not harder than M4...some scratching on rock in crampons and picks, some solid ice, some cracking off the rock. Another voice to say it's not Dark Star, that branches off right near the bottom and is visible once you are atop the snow back in there. Recommended!

Comments: Led this yesterday (9/30). Had only one rope and rapped off the back, then walked around. I concur with Kevin that I did not love the cord directly through the old-ish bolt/hangars as the profile on the hangars is very thin and 'sharp'. Couple quicklinks would do it (I woulda, but didn't have 'em).

Comments: Gave this a go myself. Brad put it well, there are plenty of placements for modern small gear. I also second Joe's comments about no gear-beta (harder), and the overhead placement at the crux-skip it. I found that I needed the 'short-guy' (unchalked but great) intermediate sidepull (I'm 5'7") as I moved away from my nest of waist-level pieces at the crux. Don't be afraid to find unchalked edges! I had plenty of gear on it, except for the punch-it after the crux. In fact, just before that place ... more >>

Comments: Climbed it last year sometime.... I don't know about the opening roof, I tried it on TR afterwards, but skipped it on lead, climbing just around to the right. However, I didn't use any of Free Willy. Found Alien placements and such near the pin (which I didn't trust either). After moving past the pin and up, I managed to grab something that came off almost bowling-ball sized in my hand, and had to throw down, sending belayers scampering. Adventurous given the sporty nature of the area.

Comments: Hey... new to this site, so my post goes back to the first post... just an anecdote that my first time up T2 about 10 years ago I got to the rotten band, and did pretty much what the first poster mentions- heading left to avoid the rotten stuff, into difficult moves. There used to be a bent pin below this, but ended up with the pin about 15ft below me, I got into an awkward place I couldn't reverse, pumped silly by now, palms outward, no feet, slick rock, thank-God ledge in front of me, but out ... more >>
