Mo staring up from our second belay. I broke up P2 and belayed on the sloping ledge just after the main chimney section, below an obvious lieback.  This worked well for rope management (and photos).

It doesnt take a full 70m to do it, but if you go from the top of the first pitch (at the nice tree ledge like 20m up or something) to the next big ledge (skipping the sloping ledge belay), its about 69m, give or take. I barely had enough rope to put my partner on belay, as I recall. Nov 28, 2012

A lot people say it takes a full 70m but I'm pretty sure when we pitched it out one was at about 35m the other much less. Anyone ever do it one pitch? Nov 28, 2012

I think this is where most parties belay. It makes sense and what doesn't make sense to me is how Herbst climbed any higher on 50m ropes? Nov 28, 2012
