|Bring micro stoppers; they work well to protect the crux. I won't tell you the exact one to use.|

|A great line. Be mindful of some loose holds around the left of Skull and Bones in the crack - they look like they could pull out at any moment. Ultimately, you'll find that you don't really need to rely on them in order to pull out that little section, but be mindful. I was toproped.|

Bring a few extra wires in the small sizes. I sure wish I did!
The above-mentioned pin is in place a bit left of the regular line.

|This climb is as good as climbing gets. Steep, exciting, great face climbing into a steep exposed corner. You don't need to place gear in the crappy flake below the crux. There are bomber small nuts/RP's and small cams, and you can place several pieces from a good stance, then just gun it to the top!|
