This pitch seemed kind of contrived. In fact, so much so that we went straight up to avoid traversing into Don't Look Up. Our variation, which the guidebook lists as a project, was pretty exciting: two bolts to cover at least 30' of climbing the end of which is harder than 5.9. Dec 21, 2006
You can do 2 raps with a single 60m, but be very careful getting to the intermediate station as you're fully hanging and have to reach in to grab the station. Dec 15, 2006
