Is it Strom Watch or Storm Watch? Did you build your own belays or leave anything fixed on this route? Did you walk off? Have yo ever rappelled the wall from the fixed combination of hand drilled bolts and pins from Thin Man taking you to the base of the FB? I wonder what condition these are in?
Just curious. Aug 23, 2007

Typo it should be Storm Watch - which what we did as we climbed the route. Watched a storm roll in. We built our own belays and then rappelled from over to the northeast of Thin Man. As I remember, they were bush raps and we left a few slings. For some we went over to the dead snag above "Lichen It" Sep 1, 2007
