sling/.75 c4 at first horn/jug halfway up

Long sling or #2 and #4/5 c4's for the anchor.

Comments: Watch out on the first 15-ish feet of the right variation. The obvious hole in the flake can be threaded, but cams behind the flake likely will not hold a fall. The thing sounds like a gong when you slap it...

Comments: I don't know what kind of Johnny Benchian hands you guys have, but for me this was fists almost the whole way. My partner said the same, and we have pretty average hands.

I agree with the P2 chimney being around 5.6 if you don't go too deep and make it awkward.
