Last pitch felt f-ing hard and slick. Have never looked at a topo and route decription so many times on a climb. I'm sure people climb this and other big limestone trad routes with single ropes, and I bet it sucks.
Awesome route, harder than any other 5.8 that I have done. The 5.8+ rating is very accurate, and should not be attempted by anyone that cannot do sustained 5.8 climbing for hours on end.
The crux is the 9th pitch, but the first is also a bit of a doozy.
Bring a good selection of gear and start very early!
