Here's a pic you won't see very often.

Is that (or were there 2 of them) baby angle still in place ?
What route did you do to get to the summit ?

I believe the story I've heard is that when Waugh did the second ascent, he thought the route went straight up the buttress to the right of the rope and so led it that way. Which made for one rather runout bit of climbing.

Rick, weren't you with Jim ?

I have no idea what route or combination of routes we actually ended up doing, but...

For the first pitch, we went up a chimney, through a hole just big enough for a climber and their rack (if the climber and the rack are fairly small). It was a choss pile, but really fun after the crust stopped raining down on my head...!

Yes indeed, we did NOT do "As the Wind Cries" (5.11R), ...which is what Paul wanted to know, I think.
..."we are not worthy"... :-)
Perhaps another day, when we feel like being really scared. Or I'll just ask Meghan to lead the runouts, she comes from a place where they know no fear.

I was curious if it was a 3rd (I think) of As the Wind Cries, or a repeat of DeVoid. Now I'm curious as to what line the bolts are known as. Sounds like a call to Mr. Ayers might be in order.

Paul-- If you find out what we were on, I'd love to know! :-)

PS: I'd like to go back and do "As the Wind Cries" sometime. It looked like fun.
