[Hide Comment] You can rap/lower from the top with a 70 meter rope. Jul 20, 2009
[Hide Comment] We even lowered using a 60m, but only just barely with rope stretch. Dec 1, 2013

[Hide Comment] Super classic! I found clipping the bolt near the top of the first crux corner to be really awkward. I think next time I'll take a cam and just plug it in. I should haul in some gear and do most of it trad. : ) More sustained than its awesome neighbor. Jun 7, 2018
