Comments: Don't let the "S" rating on pitch 3 prevent you from doing this climb - It's fun! I led it yesterday and found the pro pretty adequate (if you consider the fixed pins "adequate" pro). I placed an orange metolius about 8 feet over the belay and then headed left along the strata of the rock where I found a fixed pin after about 10 feet.

Comments: The Over and Out - Over the Hill link-up is one of the best 2 pitch outings I've done! I highly recommend it!! Pitch 1 has great stemming down low, a neat mini-traverse left under a roof and then 15 ft of super-positive laybacking to the belay. Pitch 2 looks harder than 5.9 from the belay but finger-locks and jugs seem to present themselves just at the right time. The best 9 pitch i've done in Eldo. You'll see what i mean when you get up there....
