Description Suggest change

Stellar line with great rock.  Bolt on the 2nd pitch crux has reportedly been replaced, but still not for the meek. Old school alpine 9+ R, i.e., modern 5.Hard.  I would compare the crux of this route in style, difficulty, and boldness to the Viewing, 10a, on the Coffin. But the position, exposure, and alpine factor make this feel a bit harder. Quite stimulating.

Protection Suggest change

Cams from micro to 4 Camalot, nuts, hexes are handy too.
