Spectacular route. I've always stared at it for the last several years, even brought up my trad gear most the time. I thought it was a quite a bit scarier then Octopussy. Wonderful creation by Jeff Lowe. Also some of the pins have pulled since this writing.
I left a fixed pecker at the crux to make it a little more safer as the original pins are pretty terrible. It ain't a sport climb, and falling on just about the whole route is a no-no. Serious outing. 4 star classic. Watch the rope drag. Pulling onto the hanger at the top is awesome!
For gear next time, I'd bring RPs, small set of stoppers, TCUs, 0.5 to #1 cams, 2 #2 peckers, 1 KB, 1 LA, 1 baby angle, a lot of alpine draws too. This is one of the better lines in Vail.

Blue TCU and #2 Metolius Supercam, otherwise the gear is all mank. I left a #4 Rock in situ otherwise about 8 alpine draws, beaucoup quickdraws, 5 short screws and a set of mighty guns. Bon chance and ditto on the don't fall sentiment.
Fekkin' Jeff Lowe could really climb!
