The easy entry pitches.  You head left at that prominent corner at the top of the photo.  Note the ice and snow in July.

Comments: One more gear option at the crux: a little red C3. I can attest to the fact that this placement will hold 185 downward-bound pounds. Agreed that it's good for the aspiring 11- leader in that the gear is so solid at the short crux.

Comments: Caught the show last night in Golden. Highly recommended. This guy was soloing very close to the world-standard for roped climbing back in the day. It's a great opportunity to get a better understanding of his mental approach to the whole thing. Contrary to some things I've read, Bachar is very approachable and a great storyteller.
