Monty starting up his excellent redpoint.

This is just right of the first pitch of the Standard Route. In fact, it shares the first pitch ledge with that route. This is a hard and scary lead. It use to have a single, fixed pin below the first section of 12 down low on the climb. You need to be fit to lead this. It makes a good TR.


This is between the Standard Route and Gonzo's Lament.


Wires and larger to an inch or two. Hard to protect.

Stellar pitch, it's all just barely there. Definitely a tough lead, but the gear is there, and it's good.

Right on, Monty! Wish I could have stuck around to watch it go down. Good to finally meet you yesterday. Did you find the trail?
