wow. Thanks for sharing this as well as your other beta. Brian did that start variation so I'd like to clarify, are you saying that this came from the belay at the top of the tree pitch? The belay below the Guillotine?
Just the other day, Brian and I were saying we needed to get back up there and clean some stuff. We jumped and jumped on that Guillotine with no apparent effect. However, I always felt like the rocks below it were stacked precariously. I wonder if those are the source?
How were you able to get through that roof? Do we need to bring some new bolts to make it not runnout?
I guess I know where I'll be spending my saturday afternoon.
Yeah, the guillotine is no longer, and this came from the left hanger at the belay just below it.
Pro on the roof= nice, solid pod for a red metolius. It's a somewhat tricky move, but not harder than a 9 or .10a at the very hardest to get over it once you actually figure it out. I spent a fair amount of time gardening to clean out a decent side pull, heh.
Pro is fine, you shouldn't need other bolts on the roof. Probably just a new hanger at that belay. It's too bad we didn't have any on us :C
