Did you guys get it on lead? If so, that's a proud send!!

Yes, thanks Doug! My friend Jesse led it and I did a grand job of belaying him. The pro is good the whole way, except a bit run out at the top, but from what I remember it was a bomber horizontal cam as the last piece and you're far off the ground. There's also a somewhat committing section near the middle, getting fairly high above a micro nut before placing the next gear. Overall I think it's a reasonable lead for the 5.11 trad leader.

That's awesome, Pete! This was a headpoint project for me several years ago. I haven't revisited it in many years. I remember that last crack would probably be the final gear for the run-out but clean fall portion at the top. Way to go!

Thanks, he is a really solid climber! I hope you get the chance to get back on it for the send!

Purgatory rack. Notice the crucial micro nut. Replace the #1 Camalot with a 0.75 (for a total of two 0.75's). Big fall potential at top but would be pretty clean. Photo courtesy Jesse Littleton.
