pre rigged quad and personal anchor system setup.  climbers clip into 2 strands of quad.  This is redundant and prevents the dreaded biner-pinch.  finishing seconding the nose pitch on the Harvard Route  Some recent inquiries inspired me to post another pic of our potential new route 7/5/08.  My wife and I aimed toward the V shaped roof (hands) which exited to a tapering to fingers splitter crack.  We traversed R at the second roof to gain a R facing corner for a couple pitches (tips to OW).  This led us to a notch (on left) that traversed into the North Buttress route.  5.10+, III ish.    GURR!    alpine rope solo kit
