Purgatory rack.  Notice the crucial micro nut.  Replace the @POUND@1 Camalot with a 0.75 (for a  total of two 0.75&@POUND@39@SEMICOLON@s).  Big fall potential at top but would be pretty clean.  Photo courtesy Jesse Littleton.

Thanks, he is a really solid climber! I hope you get the chance to get back on it for the send! Nov 17, 2013

That's awesome, Pete! This was a headpoint project for me several years ago. I haven't revisited it in many years. I remember that last crack would probably be the final gear for the run-out but clean fall portion at the top. Way to go! Nov 12, 2013
Yes, thanks Doug! My friend Jesse led it and I did a grand job of belaying him. The pro is good the whole way, except a bit run out at the top, but from what I remember it was a bomber horizontal cam as the last piece and you're far off the ground. There's also a somewhat committing section near the middle, getting fairly high above a micro nut before placing the next gear. Overall I think it's a reasonable lead for the 5.11 trad leader.
