Comments: Stellar route. Tape is nice for the abundant hand jams. I found a 4 friend (equivalent of old BD 3.5) and a new BD 4 to protect the wider sections very well. Also, retreat is possible from below the summit block (when your GF has a panic attack at the leap of faith and forces you to bail). Rap off the slung chockstone 15ft east of the leap of faith down into chimney. Then walk 25ft to the west to another slung block.

Comments: As of 4/7/12, the hanger on the 2nd bolt is still missing but, in my mind, is completely unnecessary.

Felt more like 9- to me but was at the end of a long day, so I was probably just tired.
