Description 

Flight 67 over Stockholm lies to the left of Industrial Disease and on the same face. A retro-bolt was placed near the start in 1996 by RMWright obviating the need for a single optional stopper. Alternatively, I have used a number six wired stopper, so take your pick; this is for the opening move. A retro bolt in the upper section has dropped the "R" rating, but you can still keep it spicey by skipping this clip. This is a solid line with a good climbing that sees heavy traffic and deservedly so. It was also one of the original lines on Table Mountain.

Protection 

Bring 7 to 8 draws, something for the anchor, and a rope.

The hangers for the two retro bolts are currently gone (as of April 13). Specifically the first bolt and the last one before the top bolts.

The original, less-than-3/8", bolts are all replaced with new 1/2". Winch Hooks for lowering too.

I thought this was way harder than Industrial Disease. I don't know if I missed the sequence, but there seems to be a huge, height dependent factor on this one. About midway up I was totally shut down. In comparison, I redpointed Disease in 2 tries. I had to pull on draws to get through this one.

It was polished and devious a few years ago - it can not have gotten much better. Save it for a cool, crisp day.

An easy OS. Kneebar rest at the bulge. Polished? And height-dependent? (Mike, it's called a dyno.) These are all power drainers. Shut up and climb.

Cool film, Matt! Such a fun place to solo.

So I have to go with the height-dependent thing. At 5'5", I had to get jacked into a sketchy stance and gun for the jug off the crimp, but my tall belayer reached the ledge without taking his feet of the slab.
