[Hide Comment] the gear list seems to be copied from bloom, and most people will find it 'lacking'. i didn't find anywhere for a .4, and unless you are really, really solid you will want bigger than a #2. here is my suggested list (in camalots) - (2-4) .5, (1-2) .75, maybe 1 each #1 to #3, big piece for the top (ie old 4.5 camalot to new 6 camalot sized).

this thing is way harder than it looks. we did it as an end-of-day warm down route, and it was almost a melt down route. i forgot how much more fun it is to TR a flare than to lead it.... if you fancy yourself a desert rat, you should add this one to your to-do list. Mar 28, 2013
