This is a ... six pitch route? I believe we did it in six. The first two are easy climbing 4a to 4b, eventually reaching a ledge belay, followed by a 5a section to a second ledge belay. After that, there's a pitch topped with a fantastic cave that contains a giant triangle which requires you to walk out towards space. In the back wall are wedged old pieces of wood. The route still has quite a few old pitons, some having been replaced by bolts. The summit block is technically the most difficult section, a face climb across ten old pitons and new bolts to the incredible summit.
Middle of the east face of Principal.
We carried a set of nuts and a double rack to BD 3.5. All raps are fixed stations. One of the last is an equalized pair of old pitons!
