just went back this past saturday 1/29/11 and gave this thing another go. It's pretty much hand/fist stacks for a long while with a knee in the crack. tr'd it because stepping to 10d ow in january (or any month for that matter) seems crazy to me.

Much harder than Firestarter for sure. The first 10 feet aren't bad as there is a bomber edge in the back to milk, but once the hand/fist stacks start its a fight. 2 each #5/#6 camalots a good idea. The crack turns into a liebackable flake near the top of the vertical section which I took full advantage of as my knee was bleedy profusely. Wide cracks are fun in a weird painful way.

To approach this crack, walk around back (to the top of the Bong Eater buttress) and then work your way up and left (west) near a tree where this climb starts.

You'll either love it or hate it...I loved it! Had to TR, I didn't have gear big enough.
