On the first ascent we belayed at the 3-bolt hanging belay on Figures,
but the best way to do this section is in one pitch, from the ground all the way up to the big ledge belay on Figures below it's final corner pitch. 70 meter rope recommended.
The last time I saw the late Walt Shipley, he'd just climbed the route. He handed me one of the pitons from the last pitch that he plucked out when he yanked on it! I keep it as a souvenir to remind me of Walt's great spirit and energy.

|Bring your A game for the crack on pitch two. That shit is scary. I backed off and took the bolted line to the left.|
