Comments: Well we have successfully/easily rapped from the original rap hangers on Ashtray Ledge. I can imagine the addition of some short chains could pinch the rope. The other couple of bolts in the ledge are cozy. I have fond memories of brewing up coffee and smoking ciggies in mid-winter, snow falling. Didn't have to go far for big adventure.

Comments: Cara, are you saying there are chains at the Ashtray belay ledge? I remember there being Metolius rap hangers there?!

Comments: Michalm, I've been waiting ten years to entertain this discussion!, but not until you climb the route first, you silly goose. Since I apparently robbed you of your pure trad experience of The Gauntlet, have a stab at Big Bros Watchin', Naked Kill, Brennivin, and Wiled Horses if you're willing to step up to the challenge.

Comments: ^maybe felt harder because it's summertime? 12d fits nicely for this in between the benchmark 12c's and 13a's in the Canyon. Also consider that LD is different style than Anarchitect. Like trying to compare Anarchitect to Sonic or something.

Comments: FA: Darren Mabe, 2004. Young and impressionable, this was my first experience of learning the dark art of bolting on lead.

Comments: Glad you enjoyed the route, Brett. I adjusted pro recommendation to say the #3.5 isn't necessary. Though there are quite a few pieces that aren't necessary.

Comments: Yes, Shaun, it was very small crimp/pinch, and wasn't good beta to begin with. Can see it better in next photo of the series. Not surprised it's gone, but I remember not using it on the send but placed that piece at waist level from the flaring jam.
