Thin and sharp...
Fun climb on a monstrous thin and pretty sharp flake. On the way up we ran into a loose section that was a bit hard to get around. Kind of pumpy working the same lieback type move through a lot of the route. Probably would be a bit hairy on lead. Don't saw through your rope on the sharp edge flake! I suppose you'd say I top-roped this but with the constant pendulum possibility we left all of the gear clipped in so it was more like being the middle climber, where you pulled a rope up after and clipped it as you went. All told, I really enjoyed this route - a beautiful area and an aesthetically pleasing line.
The route didn't seem too run out, it just ate up a lot of mid-sized gear #2ish camalots if I recall. At one point our leader ran out of the right piece and we sent up some more to supplement her rack :p
don't know if it was quite "R". but still a really fun route
