Description 

This is a great route with some fun exposure. It's a lesser traveled route on the column, good training for more moderate El Cap routes or as an intro to nailing. The line follows large, steep and clean features for the first half; the second half has smaller features and more rivets before joining the Prow at Tapir Terrace. All placements on the wild circle-head traverse were fixed as of Sept09. Although other fixed pieces ripped on me. We placed only a few pins, this route could easily go clean for those with sufficient aid-trickery experience.

Most belays are bolted. Have fun!


Protection 

Take all the toys described in the SuperTopo guidebook, with an emphasis on small offset cams/ nuts. It's unlikely that you will need any heads/ circle heads but bring them in case fixed gear is missing.
