I intended to take this line to the summit of the butte/knob. However, about 75 feet up, where it looked like the crack opened, it actually closed down and the seam filled with sand. It could be done, but for me it would require a lot of bolts. Maybe the super-aid guys, like Chris Kalous, could pull it off.
As per the rating, I really don't know how to rate aid. The pins might catch you and they might not... its hard to know unless you fall on them. However, I can say that hanging on peckers on a Wingate seam gets your blood flowing.

|Thanks Sam. I am the super aid guy, or SAG for short. i would prefer that everyone refer to me as that from now on, as in "Hey, SAG, looking good relaxing in those aiders." or "Did you see the SAG hanging it out on that ridiculous C2+ C3 placement?" etc.|
