Phenomenal route. It is steep and intimidating from the bottom and remains so until the very end. It seemed sustained for the grade (with the occasional good rest), but that may just have been the 11,000 foot altitude talking.
Gear is excellent.
Nuts + double cams from thin to #2 with one #3 camalot. Extra finger sized cams for the squeemish (like me) helps.
Our 70m just made it. YMMV with a 60m. But you can always hit the anchors on top of the 11a to get down in two raps.
