This classic route was bolted entirely on weekends (52 of them!) by a pair of South-Texan climbers. Watchout for the loose rock on pitches 9-11, especially when descending. I have witnessed huge rocks dislodged from there by climbers yarding on their stuck ropes. For that same reason I wouldn't recommend climbing below another party. A 60 meter rope to rap works fine. You may wish to consider using a rope-bag or flaking your rope over your shoulders when descending in windy conditions. The sixth pitch is awesome!
