Stuck/abandoned gear at Rivendell.  
Dave Merin cleaned the loose stuff and sent this crack today. He thought 5.11. Great gear and rock is all fine now. he pulled the fixed stoppers on the way down.
It is a very worthy route for those seeking real crack lines on the Lemmon. Many hand jams were to be had up this very steep crack. When my elbow allows this we be one of the first things a go to lead. Feb 28, 2011

yep, they've been there for maybe thirteen years. The route was never really cleaned after the aid first ascent. As Eric indicated the goal was a free ascent. Real life kicked in and I have not been strong enough since to get back on it. The overall rock is solid, it is that lower section above the last bolt that needed cleaning and never got to it.

I aid-soloed this thing a while back. It would probably go free at 5.11+ or something would be my guess. The rock is crap, and not at all worth the effort of getting back there. Jul 21, 2008
