Rappel the west side via tattered webbing and a ring. A 60m rope is just long enough for the rappel.


Protection 

Pro to 3" The crack above the roof takes #3 and #4 C4's.

Heard the lower half of this is a more recent route called Thanksgiving put up by Aidan McGuire, but the description and FA date have me confused. Anyone have more details?
