Description

This was a nice plumb line on the left side of the wall. We showed our route to a Russian expedition there at the time, and they felt that this was a new route. We found some old hardware near the top of the cliff, so it's hard to be sure of anything around there.
Anyway, it is now equipped with bolted stations up the length of our route (about 1200'), so bailing from any point on this route will be easy.
At the time, we were limited on time, and I had gotten injured, so we aided most of it. The route seems like it could go free for a classic free climb in the easy 11 range. Someone should do it!

Protection

Good pro, nothing sketchy. We clean aided most of it; just didn't have time (horrible rain that summer) to go for the free ascent.
