Comments: for the original wide P2, one C4 #4 works fine. can actually walk it along the direst stretch for many placements. don't really need the #5

Comments: one could actually hang ten pulling that initial roof instead of bypassing it. cool sequence. harder at 10b/c? but yeah, sketchy pro in suspect rock well above a good stretch of starting slab

Comments: topside anchor consists of only bolts with hangers, with no rap chains. possible to descend via the M&M's rap anchor atop east face.

Comments: getting gear handed to you after starting would be aid. should know better, and do better

Comments: cams 0.4 to 3.5" (yellow Alien to blue BD #3). afterward, descended to climber's left, down that frontside, and back across to base of dihedral

Comments: deeply stuck 0.5 purple X4 just above the last bolted rap anchor (or the first bolted anchor on the way up), as of 20 Jan 2015. cam sling visible. able to get at trigger handles, but lobes too solidly wedged in place. would prob require a crowbar

Comments: for the P2 arete variation, held off on placing the BD #4 just to see if that would really be needed. got to the top of that pitch still toting it. tho one could place a #4, there are usu other size pro avail nearby. wouldn't bring a #4 next time for the P2 arete var. rack of doubles to #2 plus one #3 would suffice. all the lighter if continuing up Solar Slab

Comments: able to rap with a 70 from the P2 rap slings under the large roof all the way down to the base (bypassing the rap anchor atop P1), with about 5 ft to spare on each strand

Comments: if opting to do just the 5.7 first pitch, be aware that the two-bolt anchor atop Honky Justice no longer has any slings or rap link/rings, as of 4 Jan 2015. the two anchor bolts and their hangers are still there. just add slings and link for the rap. there's no bolted rap anchor to the immediate right, but possible to traverse up and far to climber's right to the bolted rap anchor of Six-Gun By My Side

Comments: a #6 can protect to about halfway up the wide, or just do without. 0.5-3.5" cams would do for a piece before the wide, at its end, and the topside gear anchor

Comments: bottom right-slanting crux protectable with thinner-than-tips gear. could actually sew it up, but prob wouldn't want to tinker for too long

Comments: the oblong pillar feature (which provides the crucial initial jug) isn't fully attached to the wall. it flexes. could break off with a heavy pull, which would also result in the instant disintegration of that one slot for the potential first piece that could be placed from the starting ledge

Comments: near the top, traversed left onto the last big shoulder slope before the top, placed a high piece to protect the second, then down easy terrain to the visible bolted rap anchor of Eureka

rapped with one 70m rope, with about 20 ft on each strand to spare, so looks like a 60m would work too

Comments: can get up to the elevated start via easy scramble up the 2nd rocky gully to climber's left, the one with Cut Thin To Win at its bottom. that's also the most convenient easy descent for this part of the east face. so, not a big must to climb Such A Line first, though that's a great route, but which wouldn't require some of the gear needed for Around The World, esp if you want to pare down the lead rack for Such A Line

Comments: at the start of Cucumbers dihedral, had more faith in the microstoppers than the tiny cam "placement" after fiddling all in

Comments: P1 anchor for the last rap down consists of bolted beefy rap hangers, to clarify

Comments: gear anchor atop the last big ledge on the main wall, near the top, but quite far left of the Aurora Borealis anchor. easy traverse to climber's left to get onto the topside walkoff

Comments: finishing left to the bolted anchor of Arctic Circle Jerk would be the most convenient. but if that's busy, could anchor off big tree, to set up TR with long slings, or topside belay and then downclimb to Black Bart bolted rap anchor or walk off

Comments: one long rap from pinnacle topside anchor with two joined 70 m ropes just makes it back down to the base, bec our party of 3 happened to have two ropes
