It's a bit wide in sections but not OW. You reach past a bit..Hard route, harder than Seperate for sure

looks mega-classic. John do folks start this off the choss boulder? you could climb from the very bottom in hand stack terrain if its ever dry.

Really good. It would actually be classic if the rock was a little better and a little cleaner.

The hard parts are hands...flaring hands. Cool lip encounter.

Gear is mostly good, you just have to make sure every piece will hold. Otherwise you will probably land on your head. I placed mostly .75-4 Camalots. Doubles is a good idea. Again, you are very close to the ground/boulders.

Oh, yeah...and tape.
