This was my very first time mixed climbing outside, and needless to say, it was quite difficult. I made it to the pin, but had to back off since I had no rock gear and the ice was minimal. (Didn't even take off the caps that's how excited and new to this I was.) Oh well. An amazing route that I have not yet cleanly done, but hope to soon do. Blade Runner is also on the list to do now, what a proud line!!! Thanks for the encouragement. Nov 10, 2008
Dan, your self-deprecating humor is well received, yet I believe the crux for you would have been the need for some mid-sized cams before the need for the screws!!!! I don't know if you've done the route yet but if not; persist because it's a gem to have on the tick-list.
Cheers!!!! May 19, 2008
You know,
I have tried leading a pitch with the caps and plastic sleeves on my screws. It adds a considerable degree of dificulty. Jan 10, 2008
