Chris,
You're right about the top of Ego being soft, you should have seen it when we put it up! We cleaned a great deal of material from that ledge. At any rate thanks for cleaning more junk from the top, keep in mind you may have gotten a 2nd ascent. As far as the 10- rating goes, if you're an ok face climber it's all there.

Also, the area between Hong and far left Selfish isn't a "rockslide chute" it is the headwaters of a prominent drainage that separates the two areas. It is not dangerous unless there are flash floods which enter the canyon ~200 meters away.

If you're in the area again check out Dilated Cervix and Apathy, both routes offer fun moves on steep varnished rock. Apr 12, 2012

We TR'd this. 10- might be a sandbag.
More importantly, we pulled off about 20 pounds of holds. The sandy, fractured rock at the cruxy topout is really bad, and I hope you're not leading when the next chunk pops.
Also, be aware that the entire ground surface around Ego and Id is a fresh loose talus cone, and these two routes appear to be at the base of a big rockslide chute. Little vegetation, and no lichen, suggest there was a very recent rockfall from up high (recent, on the geological time scale). Who knows when the next one will slide? Apr 9, 2012
