Dan's Line aka Restless Heart

BETA PHOTO: The route.
Hmm.... same anchor, different result. Dan Hare captured the line on this wall with a much better concept than Table Manners. Pried out of the stainless steel center of the universe, he has uncovered another fine addition to the route count on NTM. Immediately to the right of Table Manners and sharing a top anchor with Table Manners is a line of black [now silver] hangers that identify Dan's route. The line picks out a couple of discontinuous aretes and links them up. The climbing was tricky and thought provoking and made perfect sense as a distinct route. I dropped a star for the discontinuities that provide complete rest between sections and another star for use of the grungy slot, even though this use is very brief. Overall, this was a satisfying climb to decipher and well worth the time. But, we have come to expect that of Dan, and I just want to climb the line he puts up when he is 65.
Bring 7 or 8 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

We did the first half of this route today, and the black hangers have been swapped out for silver. We found the crux sequential and fingery, but rewarding. Figuring out what route you are on in this area is tricky without a WIFI connection to Mountain Project! The guidebooks are outdated and confusing here. What would it take to persuade Mark Rolofson to update his old guidebook?
