I've been doing some clean aid down in Zion (Touchstone, Moonlight, Disco Inferno) and am interested in trying my hand at some nailing. Looking around on Mt. Project I found some A2s and a few A1s but the gear descriptions are very vague (to me at least) and I have no idea what to expect.
If any of you know any good A1 or easy A2 routes in the Wasatch I'd love to hear about them. Please be detailed in what pins I would need and how many.
There is also the question about how to clean pins. I know in sandstone you hit the pin up so the scar can later be used as a nut placement. Is it the same in granite? or is there another technique for pulling out pins?
I would also like to hear about any good A1s in Zion if you know of any and a detailed description on those would be awesome as well.
