Climbing past the terrifying vultures is definitely the crux, and makes a solid case for including speed climbing in the olympics. Feb 14, 2018

For those of you who do not know about the Metolius Rap Hanger design, here is some info. It is an over-sized, thick rap hanger that has been left as a permanent part of the two bolt rap anchor for this route. The design allows a climber to thread their rope through the hanger when setting up for rapping back down and off of the route. Feb 16, 2018
