[Hide Comment] Best pro for this route is a #1 Rich Bechler. He places perfectly at the crux of the route and gives added protection for the moves. Aug 12, 2010
[Hide Comment] By "pull the overhang directly" do you mean on the left side of the overhang, utilizing the good feet on the left as well? Or do you pull the nose of the overhang? Sep 3, 2010

[Hide Comment] Nick, its been long time, but as I remember you crank thru the notch,
not using the Amazing Grace exit holds on the left, 5.12a may be on the soft side, Sep 6, 2010
