Standard rack???? Didn't look like much gear to me ....

I ended up grabbing each edge of the face once.

Ha, TAB's initial contributions to were pretty vague. I remember thinking this was contrived to climb just the face and no gear either.

There is one really nice balance move at the crux on this climb. Loved it! Great climbing. You could lead this with the smallest RP's I am thinking. Ha! Knifeblades? Knifeblades would work great on this climb.

Not that contrived, actually. Except for my self-imposed confusion about whether or not to use the edges of the face, it flowed pretty well. A good climber could probably do it straight up, too.
