Comments: Pretty fun with extension. I think this is 11-... based a cold day ascent and on the old hand drawn guide by steve pope. The extension felt 10c-ish. Pretty good although the ledge below the extension was something to consider.

Comments: What an amazing climb. Many moves from the bottom on up and rock quality that gets better the higher you go. The crux had a little crumbly rock around the feet but the upper several cruxes were better and on stellar stone. There were 13 draws to independant anchors up on a ledge above. They were too far up there to get down with one rope. There are currently biners on the top two bolts which is how I lowered down. Using the Hanging Chain anchors only makes sense if you are trying to TR bef... more >>

Comments: Wow... from the slab on up through many wild moves and a baddass finish. Very good addition and amazing it had been overlooked for so long. Currently many fixed nuts that give it a nice sporty feel and a single set is sufficient. Did you guys place the anchor? If so that's a wild place to put it.... just my thoughts... but it would be lame if you didn't have to do that final wildness. It stacks up with the classics around it real nice.

Comments: Linking into this from King of kings is insane! With the added slings to cut back on rope drag, the fall potential was wild. I was too pumped to place, but there is some gear along the way that could minimize the action between bolts. Good job placing the bomber bolts... and so few... kept it exciting. There are some sharp edges my rope ran over up high but I didn't sling a piece up there so it was my fault. Slings!
