Comments: Just some trivia on the first ascent (at least what I remember from it :)

It was Don and Mike's route really.

Don and Mike were looking around for some off width gear to use and I had a couple of #11 Hexs in the car (this was before spring loaded cams), so I was invited along for the adventure.

I remember following and cleaning stacked Hexs (yeah.. real secure)

Don more then likely climbed the route in his work boots.

I think I came up with the name Disco Death March, mostly becau... more >>

Comments: BTW, found an interesting rap sequence with a single 60m rope that can get you back to the start of the climb.

(BTW -- the marked up beta photo is mine (taken from rockclimbing.com) -- I have no problem with my topo photos being used here as well.

Comments: A couple of things...

1) if someone would like to borrow a retired 50m rope to perform a measurement, I have one

2) and just to add or re-enforce some thoughts on the high/low set of anchors.

While having the anchor set up high might be the "better" choice, there are some valid arguments for having the anchor next to the existing tree. Say that the high anchors are set. Would that stop people from using the tree? -- I believe no. Because:
  • It's documented in guide books
  • It's been establ...
