Climbed this Nov 2014. Notes:
1. For aiding, the rack is huge! Many, many cams from fingers (about first 30 feet or so) to ring-lock size to tight hands to hands to rattly hands and eventually fists, 180 feet up.
2. This may go free. There are a couple spots with hands-off rests that could be used to break up this monster pitch into 2 or 3 shorter pitches (or to stop and haul up more gear).
3. The rock is basically sound and yet threw a bunch of loose flakes/holds off. In particular entering the wide pod/slot feature 2/3 of the way up, the entire right side had recently exfoliated into a delicate detached flake, 6 feet tall, just sorta teetering there. Broke the thinner top half into manageable pieces for hucking out from the cliff. Rest is fatter, sort of attached and we left it be. It would be easy to pry off. Belayer is about 100 feet below.
4. Nice find you guys! Quite the splitter!
