This route is R rated, in my opinion, and should only be attempted by chossophiles who love to trundle more than they love to climb splitters.

Two stars? You made me promise never to even add this route to the database...I suppose time heals all wounds.

If anyone actually wants the second ascent of this, don't try it on a weekend. There's still plenty of loose rock on the second pitch and you'll definitely send shit down to the base area. Jul 29, 2010
