Hunting Party starts up another slot/roof to a lower angle dihedral. In the large corner above, head up a tricky overhanging face to a roof, followed by several moves along the arete just before the anchors. Cruxes arise at the initial slot/roof and below the upper roof and both are 5.11c/d. The middle 20 feet have been led both on bolts or with several mid range Friends, either works, although the Friend placements seemed to draw me away from the climbing. Slings would help these placements. Hunting Party is a fun route because it has a little of everything: roof, crack, dihedral, face, arete all packed into a bit less than 90 feet.
QDs only. This 85 foot route needs 12 - 13 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top. A 60 m rope is probably needed. It is best to stick clip bolt # 2 to avoid unwanted rope drag.
