Crux is right at the start! Then sustained fingers to the top!

lots of blue metolius

Reservation Blues 

Hard to put gear in at the beginning.


Purple works good too!

Right of winter sustenance and full clip

This thing is soooo good. Short, powerful cruxes with excellent rests interspersed throughout. Definitely longer than 90' tho. A 70m is kind of mandatory. (a 60 works with shenanigans) My perfect rack: 3x purple Mastercams, 6x blue, 2x red C3s, 2x yellow Mastercams, 2x yellow C3s. I´d also disagree that putting gear in early on is hard. There is maybe one powerful placement and then it´s not too bad.

Max's gear beta is good, however climbers w a smaller sack, such as myself, may want 9-10 in the blue metolius/green alien size

Chuck, I feel like a bit of an ass-I looked at an old rack photo and discovered that I accidentally omitted 2x green aliens from my gear beta above. That would bring the total up to 10 blue-sized pieces for the route. Sorry for any inadvertent sandbagging!
