The biggest most bad ass "sport" route ever!
All you need is loads of draws and big guns! A portaledge will make your journey more comfortable for parties of two or more. Most plan for three days on the wall breaking the route into three chunks. First day gets you established on the route, on the easier low angle pitches( harder hauling) with time to climb the first two cruxy pitches. Day two delivers you at the critter bivy after some nice climbing, multiple cruxy pitches and some traversing. Day three beats you down from the start with back to back hard pitches until you reach the final jug haul to the summit.
