PTFE 5.9- 5c 17 VI 16 HVS 4c PG13  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : East Face
Good rock, nice features, climbs well, a fun short route and a nice complement to Touch of Teflon. The protection was surprisingly good. I got in 7 pieces, twice in pairs. A couple pieces might not hold big falls and the gear placements require some work, hence the PG rating, but overall surprisingly straightforward....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
