Just did this route on 11-18-09. We had fun. Clean rock good climbing. 1st pitch was more like mid 11 I'd say. Double set to 3 camalot 1#4 and 1#5 camalot with one extra #1 camalot would've been great. Be careful on the second rappel the crack angles and wants to eat your rope.Next time I would opt for 2 60m ropes intead of 1 70m.

Zach, Bird told me about the rope getting stuck on that second rap. Wish I could have got that belay/rap anchor in further to the right but the rock was junk. Good beta for those looking to do the route.

Did this last week. A good route. My partner freed everything while following (we were three) He thought about 12 A.
