The big enchilada. This monstrous hanging dagger falls from the lip of the canyon and hangs free for most of its length as it tries touch down. If it does, it's a burly free standing pillar. If not, it's radical, loose dry-tooling through a 15-foot cave to overhanging munge (held together with ice) to the hanging widow-maker. Mike Dahlberg once led this with removable bolts on lead to get to the hanger.
Immediatley up river from previous route.
When in, screws. When not, TR.
