Comments: Ah.. You do look like a young Luebben in that photo (to me anyways). Also, I know understand the photo - in the photo that back wall kind of looks like it is directly beneath your feet like a block.

And no... that is definitely not the "easy section".. haha..

Comments: What a masterpiece. This thing is LOOONG. Bring 2 ropes and a will to succeed.

The deathblock is still there and spices up the route. Make sure your belayer is aware of it as you climb to it so they can move over.

My (new) favorite OW in IC.

Comments: Add another 5 and a 6 to your rack if you think you'll 'finish' the top by aiding it... Not putting enough gear in is a real a-hole move for your second to clean.

BTW: down cleaning is a complete pain in the ass and take about as much effort as the climb itself.

(big feet really don't help. I couldn't get much of my feet in at the 'flip'. Freaking h... more >>

Comments: Whoa, this is a big girl indeed.

Very important gear beta for the second pitch. Save your blue big bros for the 'top'. VG9s do not work for the 'last' 20 feet or so. If you fell, you'd fall onto tipped out VG9s and big bros...

Also, I say 'top' because as you crest what looks like the end, you realize that you have a lot longer to go. You have to g... more >>

Comments: More gear beta: Bring a 0.5 and 0.75. I only used one big bro, but really just walked 4 #3s up and left them as I went.

Also, bring an extra set of lungs.

Comments: There is a single bolt on the top of this now, and praise baby Jesus it is there. I would be terrified to climb down the back side without first having climbed up and down a couple times.

It continues to rain down tiny pebbles as it 'cleans up'. Awesome climb.

Comments: This climb is super bad ass and should not be missed. Don't think twice about top roping it. Just hike up to the top to drop a line. Very safe TR and lots of fun!

Horizontal chicken winging. What could be better?
