Comments: TONS of gear available on 1st pitch.
Would be a good one to send a new leader up (provided they can climb comfortably at the grade) just because there are so many gear placement opportunities.

Comments: Definitely skip the small, dead/dying tree, regardless of whether it's backed up with a nut/tricam.
Do it in one, or if you absolutely have to, build an ultra bomber gear anchor in the hand crack above the dead tree.
The moves around the nose are fun, with a great view.

Comments: +1 on the crappy gear just over the lip.

There is a super bomber yellow alien just under the roof however, and a PERFECT blue alien before that.

Trust them, and move quickly. There is good gear a little further past the lip.

Comments: Not so sure there is still gear between the bolt and the big #3 horizontal.

I was told of a small offset placement but the rock there appears to have been blown out. Looks like possible fresh rock scaring there. The small offset won't go and it's too shallow and flared there for wires.

There might be a marginal small wire placement one move before the bomber horizontal but by that point you are extremely run out with a small spinner bolt around 10-12 feet below your feet (ground fall p... more >>

Comments: I feel like i need to qualify Kurtz's suggestion for pro on reppy's-

a #.75 and one or two #1's fit the beginning of the crack.

it's #2's from there to the pod

a #3.5 protects the pod

#3's from the top of the pod to the end of the crack. (#2's suck here)

Comments: I wouldn't know for sure which is "THE" way but when we did it we went slightly left where the line in the pic goes slightly right.

Sort of crappy right hand (or match) at the right corner under the block (right above where the yellow line kinks right) then a big move high and left for the top left corner of the block, no?

That's what was chalked up, anyway, and good fun.

Comments: Wow. This thing is brutal.
Be very concious of rope drag, the last two roofs are probably much more fun without it.
