2nd pitch, I think the 2nd ascent, maybe the 3rd.  P Davidson leading, Jim Haisley on the belay, swinging leads.

Yep agreed!
I thought it was a real thrutch.
The next week or so, Baxter and I went down to watch Larry Coats thrash on it.
He faced into the second pitch the opposite way both Scott and I had.
We were laughing when he started that way because we were sure it was the wrong thing to do and it would chew him up and spit him out.

He came down saying it was probably only 5.9.
We were amazed and humbled when he just hiked the thing. Nov 23, 2015
