Mark Regier on the opening of pitch one.  Best to not place gear at first as in this picture, to avoid rope drag.

To protect this move, i slotted a cam on a mid-legnth sling in the left crack. I made a couple moves up to comfortable ground, placed piece, then had a partner unclip the cam (party of four). Or, in a party of two, take off belay briefly to unclip the cam. May 5, 2011

there are plenty of hands to work through this opeing move. per one guidebook and perhaps other mentions, i expected it to be somewhat desperate moves, which they were not. May 5, 2011
