Comments: Actually... A great perspective on the route would be a closeup of of the GIANT F-ing spiders all over this thing. That is the only part of this route that I remember anyway. Cool shot though.

Comments: Hey Dan,

If this route is tricky to onsight, why are you spraying beta? Some of us like tricky onsights. Lucky for me, I didn't read this until after. Please consider editing or at least a disclaimer before your post.

Comments: I climbed this with a #3 Camelot as my biggest piece. I would not recommend this. I placed it tipped out in the roof where it almost immediately walked far enough in that it opened and fell out. This was my last piece of gear I could fit till the very very top, aka soloing. You will want at least a #4 maybe 2.

Comments: ... Or don't, it is jugs to the first bolt. Not to mention you can reach the bolt from the rock near the base anyway.
