Be advised, I didn't find the belay to be the most solid after that traverse left. Fortunately, it is on a decent sized ledge. Unfortunately, the granite there is decomposing. I think I got a cam and slung flakes, and wedged my ass in good. Which was good, because my follower actually took a fall! Very unexpected, from a solid climber on a 5.7. We finished the route via the trembling traverse onto surrealistic pillar rather than up the decomposing gully.
