Protection [Edit]

0.2 through 2.0 camalots, extra long slings. Shares anchors with Death and Taxes.

I'll chime in. High quality climbing for the majority of this pitch. Lots of action with an outrageous dihedral exit up high. There are a couple spots where you can't toss in a piece ad libitum, but nothing too stressful. There's a block about halfway up that is reminiscent of the block roof on Vertebrae, though it seems just as solid.

Bring more long slings than you think you need.

A discerning (or desperate?) eye can find a piece or two before the final committing moves to the anchors. Apr 1, 2014

I'm with Clay, outrageous dihedral exit, but not much gear to be found on the awkward ledge after. I found a 00 C3 to be crucial out left to protect the topout. Apr 3, 2017
