Comments: Best line from Andy's "Almost FFA" write-up in the AAJ:

"It was later transpired that the femur was split near the head; it would require a screw to fix it. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Cameron for letting me carry my share of the gear back to the parking lot."

Comments: +1 to Phil's gear beta. Very little small stuff is necessary, and a #4 Camalot is definitely not.

Kevin and I did a bit of a variation to the route route marked on the topo, which turned out to be very high quality climbing:
At the pitch 5 roof, move right on steep & thuggy jugs to gain a stance below a left-facing, left-leaning corner. Belay here or continue. Climb the corner, which consists of a sweet, hand-sized crack to a tricky, thin section with smeary feet. This will take you to t... more >>

Comments: As of yesterday, Alexander's is in and beautiful.

It was very thin above the chockstone, so we had to rap from there. Can't wait to go back and finish to Broadway and maybe another route to summit.

Double ropes would be very nice, but it can be rapped with a single. We had a 60m and did a little down-climbing on the second pitch. It was 5 raps for us. A 70m would have been fantastic (might still be a little bit of snow down-climbing to get to the top of the first pitch).

Comments: Is this the easiest route for the last pitch, just above the chockstone?

Comments: Incredible pitch! If you clip the chains from the jug with draws extending them, you are doing a different route. It's full value if you pull the lip.

Comments: Thanks for the input. I'd be interested in pull test results of similar conditions.
