    Best route on the wall when combined with Melting Into Madness? Clip the bolt left of the midway belay station and the next couple ones with long runners, no rope drag to speak of.

    Just a heads up, was up there today and the roof of the 2nd pitch has some softball size chunks that are pretty close to popping out. So pull softly and don't step on them.
