Description

P1 is short and relatively easy, so linking together with P2 is quite straightforward. You'll get some rope drag but this can be minimized by not clipping all the A0 bolts at the overhang. A 2' sling to step in is helpful on the last bolt. Hey, if you're gonna cheat, you might as well make it easy!

Protection

Well bolted. Rappel 2X if you have one rope; 2 ropes (or POSSIBLY a 70m rope) will get you to the base in one rap.

Hello all,
Just wondering for some more info about this route. A few friends and I are looking to do this this summer. But the aid section is baffling me a little. What exactly do they mean by aiding the roof bolted roof section? Im sorry for my ignorance, but I just don't understand it by just reading what's on the web page and the book. Thank you for your help.
