Comments: i did this route with a buddy of mine, and it's my favorite at pinn to date! i got to lead pitches 1, 3, and 5, and i wouldn't have it any other way. the exposure on pitches 3 and 5 make the leading that much more spectacular! the bolts are good, and the rock is relatively solid for pinn climbing. take a camera for when you get to the top of the north tower of machete ridge!
