This would probably be a great route if it got more traffic and cleaned up. Runouts I normally don't mind, but runouts while tiptoeing through a minefield of pigshit-slick moss patches are another story. Still, it's a nice long line with adequate pro and a great view of the valley.
The route could use bolted anchors at the top. In the meantime, my partner and I left webbing with a rap ring and a quicklink on the tree at the top. A 60m rope is barely enough to get you to the ground with this rig.
Look for an ancient fixed pin about three-quarters of the way up.
