You'll only get two or three pieces in, but I think I placed two blue aliens, so double up on the small stuff. Anchor takes tips to 1". Crux is not snapping off the edge of the flake where its wafer thin. Jan 20, 2011
Short but fierce! After getting a solid #1TCU down low and a bomber #0 a few feet higher, you have to punch it through the upper half. I was unable to find a stance to place gear fom, and subsequently was looking at a bad fall. The difficult section is prob only 20' until easier terrain. Nov 4, 2012
