I've got ropes and 'draws and slings a plenty, several belay devices and one excited partner. Is there anything else I need to get to the top of this monster? Asenders or ladders??
I'm planning on 2 days, so I'll be taking lots of water/little food. I've got a haul bag, rope and pulley. I've got to be forgetting something, any help?

also posted in 'Sport'.

At least 3 days, no less than 4 ropes, the biggest haul sack you can find, big enough for you and your pard to hide in and whimper amd oh ya a triple rack of cams to BD #6. The little known spring on the 3 rd pitch is a good place to fill up on water, by the way.

Seriously guys if you dont have something helpful to say just ....
It can be done with 12-14 draws but if you want to simul climb or link pitches you gonna need more.
1 ROPE is enough for 2 guys, and if its 70 mts better.you know helmet and plenty o f water .
I think the two hard pitches can be done in french free, or using a sling as step.
There are some directional bolts for the rappel use them.


Good luck enjoy the ride

Sorry I can't contribute, I didn't get a chance ot do this one myself. Please post a trip report when you get back. Pictures would rock. You should totally take a camera and be sure to use it.
Peace,
Thomas
