Comments: Not sure if they just got chopped, but there are no anchors. Having to deal with setting one up quite far back, and having to bring up my second and move a ways over to rap off a tree took away from the quality of the climb. Juice might not be worth the squeeze (due to length of climb, or lack there of, not the quality of the climbing). Just my two cents.

Comments: The rap off seems a little sketchy. There were three pieces of fried tat, poorly wrapped around the summit. I opted for a needles style rap off. If you choose to do this, be weary, I had a 70m rope, and a 60 might leave you dangling a few feet off the ground

Comments: Was thinking about doing a solo aid of this route. Anyone see any inherent obstacles in this? Was planning on going midweek, fixing the first two pitches one day, sleeping, and then firing the last four pitches the next day. Was hoping to get away with a single 70m rope, and a hammock bivy on broadway. Any concerns, thoughts, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
