Comments: Did this with an old 70m today and it barely made it ledge to ledge, no way could we have belayed from the ground. A fresh 70m should be fine, but probably best to belay from the ledge (single belay bolt) if your rope is old.

That said, mega fun pitch. Well worth doing!

Comments: Super fun route for sure. I'd recommend using a regular draw on the first bolt off the ledge, then back clean the second draw after clipping the 3rd to reduce drag. Done this way, you don't risk a ledge fall if you blow the first roof.

Comments: What a great pitch, three distinct cruxes provide a good challenge for the 5.11 leader. Moving past the first roof is the easiest of them, imho. The sting in the tail going for the chains was my favorite part, no free ride to the chains on this one!

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!
