Stunning to be climbing in afternoon sun too [though it makes the descent in the dark a littler harder :) ]
A Couple of updates to the HW108 guide.
There's actually 6 bolts on the first pitch, an extra one between the marked 3 and 4, and between the marked 4 and the belay.
The anchor at the top of P1 is a 3bb not a 2bb as marked in the guide.
The second pitch is much straighter than it appears in the guide, and has an extra third bolt
The pitches do NOT get shorter, contrary to what the book may appear to show :)
They do however, get easier.
The third belay is quite crusty and arbitrary, if you are climbing in daylight, you would probably start simul climbing here and be done with it. All gear is thin and marginal. Biggest piece we used was a #1 tricam.
Also, the big 12' high column marked in the topo is more to the right, closer to the top of the climb than is shown.
This info is(was) correct as at 2 - Sept - 2001."
