|This is the best rock climb in the Tetons. It is perhaps the steepest crack I have ever been on. That being the case, rappellling down it with only one 60 would be horrid. If you go to the top your partner has to go to the top as well.|

|Sam, maybe it would be more accurate to call it "the best west-facing hand crack of two pitches on central Omega Buttress". Best rock climb in GTNP? Hmmm.|

This thing is burly right off the deck.
What's the deal with the old fixed line to the left of the route?

|No amount of typing on your keyboard will get bolts, hand drilled, in this overhang or a red point of this route. 60 m rope is ok. I would recommend 2 rattly hand sized cams for pitch 2. Yes, I am afraid so, I made the send.|
