Thought this was stout for .10a. Bring extra blue/black aliens.

I usually take a double length sling for the last piece before traversing to the chains.

One 60m rope will do.

Did this in the summer of 2013. It was a super fun route.

I would definitely agree with the 5.10b rating.

Should be done in the late summer/when the spray from the Falls aren't so bad, otherwise the route will be wet.
