Comments: I really like this little route, and I'm glad it hasn't been bolted up. The pro was great, although like the description says, you're not getting any rest stances to place it. Other than a single yellow Mastercam, I think we did it with stoppers and horn slinging.

I see we're calling it 5.8+ rather than the 5.7 shown on the topo, which is probably right since that move through the bulge on P1 got my attention. On P2, I ended up a little right of that eyebrow where you could build the gear nest and it seemed like more trouble to get ove... more >>
