This is just right of the first pitch of the Standard Route. In fact, it shares the first pitch ledge with that route. This is a hard and scary lead. It use to have a single, fixed pin below the first section of 12 down low on the climb. You need to be fit to lead this. It makes a good TR.


This is between the Standard Route and Gonzo's Lament.


Wires and larger to an inch or two. Hard to protect.

Stellar pitch, it's all just barely there. Definitely a tough lead, but the gear is there, and it's good.

This route takes really good gear. Believe me, I tested it. Placing it can be challenging. This would be a really impressive onsight with no knowledge of the gear or the route. Jan 20, 2018
