Phenomenal line that doesn't back off.

A new piton adds extra security about half way up. Found superb hand jams to top out the route to the belay.

Great line, very well protected, don't bother clipping the alcoa piton, it's hammered in too far, got pumped trying to clip it. Get good gear below that point and then cruise through the cruxy/foot smear section before getting great gear above it...awesome climb
