Comments: Great write up.

I actually really liked this. Which says something for my sanity.
Climbing good rock vs choss is maybe akin to a well protected sport route vs a tricky thin-gear run out trad line.
But much worse.

4 stars. Heh heh

Comments: This is a spooky free solo as the rock quality was suspect here and there. Quite the sigh of relief when I topped out.

Comments: "Razor sharp" is a pretty good exageration.

Did this again today and ya, it was a tad dirty here and there, but certainly not chossy. Adds to the adventure imo.

Comments: I actually tried to give it a lead back before, you know, I sucked.

Maybe Grk is right. Leave it to those that are capable of doing it. The more memorable routes for me have always been the ones with heady parts to them.

Comments: +1 for that as I thought that 1st placement was a little spook.

Comments: Just read the pin was changed, and I have to admit I'm a little bummed. The crazy reach is what made the route for me.
I'm not sayin it wasn't the right thing to do though.

Funny how certain routes are burned in my memory because of the protection difficulties, more so than the climbing itself.

Comments: Mevans,

That's unnamed as far as I know.

Make something up and put it on a page for us all to geek at.

Was it any fun?
