It's odd that the Wiessner Route itself is not mentioned in this section. It's that giant floor-to-ceiling chimney: the most obvious line on the cliff and a good old-fashioned thrant (thrash/grunt/rant). It protects okay, and there are actually some micro-gear placements on the middle pitch, although you should be prepared to grunt a long way. You can't really fall out of it, but you might feel that you will, sometimes for 30 feet at a stretch. Big cams, well, just aren't big enough, but your helmet will quite likely get stuck, so dangle it or leave it behind. A couple of raps will get you down: once to the top of The Procession, thence another to the ground. Bring two ropes because I can't remember if one is enough and it probably ain't. Best done in the rain, to experience the full catastrophe. Oh, and there may be bats and/or amphibians in the deepest bits. Dec 6, 2016
