This is the infamous thin crack between Maxilash and Vault. It uses the same descent as Vault (i.e. through the rock to H & H Grunt). This is a practice in the art of combining thin tips jamming with simultaneous flaring hand jams. A good route to practice for this one is New Mutant near Friday the 13th.
This protects well, but use extra long runners below the roof.
Hey all, someone took my gear off of this route, and I want it back. A friend and I started projecting Octagon about a month ago and built a stopper nest to enable quick attempts. Someone recently took this temporary anchor as if it were booty. This amounts to three stoppers, webbing, and four carabiners.
I assume that it was taken via someone lowering off of the Maxilash anchors, which, I will remind you, were placed there by yours truly. I could see how someone might think it was bail gear, but I consider it projecting gear like draws hung on a project, or the stopper nest on Hypertension.
I was reluctant to call it a f.a. too, simply because I knew there would be responses like A.C.'s. But after doing some research, I found that the few folks who claimed they had done it never actually stood by that claim. If you have additional info, post it(who, when and how). Thanks
Thanks Tom, my best estimate is .12c. It was easier than I thought it would be with respect to its reputation. Maybe I just figured out good beta(email me if you want specifics on that-ACLove@pol.net).
