Comments: Finally did this again over the weekend- super fun. With a 70m, we did this in 7 pitches to the terrace on Solar Slab, and could have done it in 6 if we had linked the first two pitches. Single rack to a #4 with doubles in green and purple camalots and a set of nuts was just right if you're comfortable at the grade.

The route still needs more traffic to clean up the 5.7/5.8 pitches, so do tread lightly, but otherwise it's just as fun as I remember it being!

Comments: I'd definitely take a #5 C4 for this route- it was nice for the belay and certainly nice for the last pitch- especially if you're breaking into the grade.

Really good, no harder than 5.9, imho- the crux is basically a stemming problem with really good feet. Think three dimensionally on this one and you'll be fine- try to thug through this and you'll struggle for sure.

Comments: Never liked the start of this thing- if you stand start off the big sidepull jug its a fun, yet challenging v5ish thing. This also avoids the subterranean groveling.

Comments: Thanks for the heads up on the bolt. The rock on this one is iffy at best- finding good rock to replace the second to last pro bolt last year was tough- and i'm not optimistic about the life span of that hole.

I'll try to get out to it or let someone else know about it and maybe try a 5/8" 5-piece or a glue-in and see how it holds up.
