Bob Kryzer cruxing of Freehander. 6 June '10.
Sustained route, some long reaches. No real distinct crux. Move left after the last bolt onto great pinches, then finish out with a pumpy/stemming anchor clip. Use caution when clipping the anchors as the fall does not look very forgiving.
After putting up a TR on this route (in the cleaning process) the first ascentionists were approached by a hiker. He asked what they were up to, and they replied "climbing". He looked at the ropes and harnesses, shrugged and said something to the effect of "thats nothing, a few years back I freehanded that". Thus it came to be known as Freehander.
First route on the left side of the platform.
5 bolts, chain anchors
