I did it several years ago and thought the Crystal Chimney pitch was the crux. Ran into Richie Copeland, RIP, who asked how we did that pitch and said I used small nuts and cam hooks, he has done the pitch several times and told me he always nails that pitch, he didn't think the risk of falling onto that ledge was worth it. It may be a bit cleaner and easier now but just be aware of the leg breaking potential on this pitch. Mar 30, 2018
