Skyler I know you know this, but climbing w/o a helmet on tower routes (even well traveled ones) out here is asking for trouble. You just need to ask yourself -- "Do I want to make the front page of the Sentinel?" 'Cause if you have a bad accident in there, you're going to.

No argument here. I was as surprised as you to see Rick get to the belay without a helmet. Even after a 1,000 ascents that route is still chossy! I wore a helmet while I uploaded the photos just to be safe....
