Great line for sure. The fixed pin on pitch 1 is gone. A set of nuts is useful on the first pitch. Pitch 5 is nice but needs a little more traffic due to black lichen. Aug 19, 2013
One of the finest splitters anywhere. Dec 4, 2015

Route can be rapped with a 70 meter rope. Watch out for a snagged rope on the first rappel from the summit. Pitches 1 and 2 can easily be linked if you bring a 3, 4 and 5 camalot. Much more comfortable belay stance at the top of 2. Aug 6, 2017

P6 is more like 5.9 than 5.10+. Definitely link P1 and P2, and 3x #4 should be plenty for the route. Aug 10, 2017
