Only one piece of protection is needed on Robbins Crack if you are going to lead it... a #12 curved stopper fits perfectly in the hole above when you are standing on the midway ledge. A pad can protect the moves to the ledge and the piece will protect you from hitting the ground from there. Mar 27, 2007
