Are there draws on Sonic Youth, and if so, what kind of condition are they in? Greg Twombly

Hey Greg, sonic is equipped and they're all in good shape. Many of them are longer draws though for some of the link ups, so maybe bring some shorties if those are more your thing. Also, not sure if the anchors have anything, so bring a couple at least. SteveZ

Thanks. Are they cable draws or webbing? I'm a little nervous about using webbing draws that have been in the sun for awhile. Greg Twombly

Mostly webbing. There's maybe one cable perma-draw down low. Fortunately they don't see much sun down there. SteveZ

Any advice for the project? I hear the third clip is tough-anything else? Greg Twombly

WTF is so hard for people to at least use rock colored or black slings for fixed draws if they really need to be there? M Sprague

Pardon, the exclamation is a rarity with me here. It is just my irritation of seeing one too many examples of people having little regard to not let their crags look completely like an indoor gym. M Sprague

Those sassy color draws did in fact get swapped out for more subdued ones.

I used some drop knees at the top, for me it was important to really dial in the feet up there. The bottom felt harder than the top to me though... so who knows. And yeah that clip saps the energy!
