In the fall of 98 I think, we camped, and I on-sited the first pitch.
5 yrs later I persuaded another sucker, I mean a friend and hard-man to help conquer the upper section on lead via a steep winding seam and slab.
About 2 yrs later I got my Red point after 3 separate attempts.That was 8 yrs ago. don't expect the beta to be perfect.
I don't believe the 2nd P has been seconded.
