It's kinda bad to mess up on your route, oops. Fun route though, thanks. I'll change it up, I think I read the Don't fire... names and dates.

No Problem . If anyone these days is interested in the history of NH FA's . Many of the multi pitch routes of the early climbs on the three major cliffs the leading of pitches were shared regardless of whose name was listed first.The Mines of Moria is but one example

I think the history of these routes is great, I vividly remember the end of the first pitch traverse, a mix of pins and bad cams, reaching up trying to get a head to stick in the verticle seam while I was standing on a terrible #2 camalot, wondering what the hell you guys got to stick in few places instead of cams. Made me sack-up and top step my piece. Thanks. Also, how was Warlock?

I didn't lead the first pitch but did the second pitch , we re-bolted the old button head all the time back in the 90's :) I do remember the hard moves out right on the jug and this was my first time doing the aid / jug back clean. My partner made rurp moves before the ledge and I can remember on the second pitch I nailed spectacular cracks and thought the climb was amazing . Here is a photo of me relaxing on the big boulder as mike leads the traverse pitch 1

Would be nice to see an actual description of this putative 4 star route!

If any one wants to right up a description and directions here, they can be slipped in, or the page moved over to you. nhclimber fell down on the job.

Ha, oops. I will find time. It would be fun to reclimb. First pitches are great aid. Last pitches are good if dirty free climbing.
