Doing these climbs as single pitches makes them more memorable for the leader and allows time for more! However, I would recommend doing some in 2 pitches at least once to experience the comfortable and scenic belay stances (especially memorable at sunset). Aug 4, 2012

This section of wall has great exposure and views. The routes can all be done as long pitches as well! Jun 13, 2012
