|The Sine Wall
A little tricky to get gear in at the bottom, then pretty sustained to the top.
Small cams and nuts are helpful.

First route put up at the Forks. Regardless of rumors, cams (Friends) were in use, just nothing smaller than a #1, although Scott did protect most of the climb on passive gear (stoppers and hexes). An interesting aside, though, is that we started in the groove to the left of the normal start today, and it was protected with a thrown hex into the slot at the top since the crack in the groove is sealed. I tried this start again several years ago, and couldn't do it, or at least not on the protection I could find (couldn't do the toss- Baxter was better at baseball than I ever was!)
