|I remember belaying Eric on this, it was real scary. He used Chouinard Cracknups for pro. Good thing he didn't fall.|

Lead this thing onsight with a few draws and small wires. Never used the wires. Basically soloed it except for clipping the bolt on high on Guenese. Told my belayer (Boulos) to feed a bunch of rope out and stay out of the fall zone so I didn't kill us both if I blew it. All went well.
P.S. Matt says "deck is a mere 30+ feet away", although he neglects to mention that the landing zone is a razor-edged rock-band jutting straight up at you. Falling from even 10 feet up could be deadly.
