|this route is fantastic, thanks to those who put it up. 1 minor comment, unless mammut screwed up and made my 70m rope 10 feet short you will not make it to the ground on a 70m, so be careful. luckily my belayer was on it and noticed in time, but be sure and knot your rope. a 70m will get you to the easy 5.1 climbing that starts the route- you can stand up, untie, and downclimb no problem. but if you are just rapping down you might get an unpleasant surprise.|

I was just there in April - lead this one and loved it more than when I cleaned it in November.
My 70m brought me safely to the ground - with rope to spare. I wonder if it has anything to do with which side of the slide you lower off? The party just ahead of us were short roped, and they had lowered off to the right of the bulge - more along the bolt line.
I lowered off to the left of the bulge ... just a heads up for anyone else coming down. (I have a 70m Edelweiss)and I rapped off the same line in November and had no problems.
Awesome climb too!
