Comments: Great route! take a nut for the runout at the top and definitely some small gear for the bottom just after the first few bolts to prevent a ground fall ( .75 and smaller). Chains at top are low and perfect for the lead but a little awkward for the rappel, however there is a second set you can rappel on the other side. A 70m will take you to the ground with the first set on rappel but not a 60.

Comments: Offsets would be nice for the 2nd pitch. A flaring crack presents a bit of a challenge for gear placement.
