Awesome pitch, definitely take the time to stop and appreciate this one. A little dirty but will clean up really really well. Probably a lil harder than 5.7, but if you've hiked all the way up here yer probably out for a pretty stout day! Really the Only warmup here as of yet! Double set should do it, with maybe extra from .4-.75...?(Camalots). Anchor is two good pitons, replaced the ole webbing today, would be cool if someone would help out and throw a couple o'quick links or rap biners up there though!
