Great route - I just want to clarify an earlier comment, as I had climbed with Don Hoover for years before his health gave out. The Hoover Manuver was set as an Arial with the feet hanging and used to create momentum as the climber moves from one ledge to the next. Don, during his climbing career, indicated almost all of the moves him and his brother Dennis tried to do were dynamic movements(Dynos & Arials).

The Arial version is significantly harder then the static route. Nov 20, 2014
