Vulcan Death Grip: I placed an orange TCU at the first crux. A #0.5 C4 comes in handy towards the top of the 2nd pitch. Is this the only "multi-pitch" climb at Hartmans? Sep 15, 2011

Vulcan Death Grip requires a 0.5 Camalot to protect the crux on the first pitch. You can also place this cam on the second pitch. Without this cam, the route would be killer run out. Aug 18, 2007
