Comments: On 4/2/2016, my second climbed past the pin on P2 (by-the-book P2), forgot to unclip, and fell trying to clean it from above. This strange load sheared the pin.

Very sorry about this. I can't remember how critical it felt to have protection at this section of the pitch, but I do think it would be difficult to place gear from the stance.

Our next step is to contact ACE but figured it best to post to this forum.

Other than that, incredible and heady route. Great movement.

Comments: Came in to say I climbed this route today, and it was marvelous. I was very grateful for the opportunity to put my hands on this thing in its current state.

I hope the bolts remain. Personally I would love to project this route.

More generally it seems a shame to revert to its previously unclimbed condition. A couple parties on it today; nice to see.

Get on it while it lasts.

Comments: Hi Larry, we must've gotten on a bit earlier, but I did notice the close proximity of one party to another at about 1PM (11/6/2004); hope it didn't detract too much from the quality of the experience. We left a 0.5 Camalot on the last pitch. If you were able to free it, and feel like returning, I would be eternally thankful (+ some nice beers as well - ptfinnegan@gmail.com).

Link pitches 2+3, 4+5 (ridiculous exposure on 4+5).

There is a ton of loose rock/debris on the rappels (... more >>

Comments: I lost a blue/gold Reverso at the base on 6/12/04. If anyone would come across it, I'd offer up a beer or two.

Fun climb, last pitch a little scary for a beginning leader w/ zero crack climbing experience.
