Leinau led the first set of bolts and I led the crack higher up. Only had a set of nuts and a few cams, none the right size for an anchor. traversed all the way to romper room bolts adn belayed. Good crack, polished, and flaring, but not vertical.
12/5/04:spivey took the first (bolted) pitch, i took the second (gear) - we cleaned the first of field of opportunity for some folk who'd been benighted and left EIGHT CAMS out overnight. were they ever surprised to see the only party on the hill right on top of their gear!
anyway my last long effort at describing this awesome day didn't save right so i shouldn't even mention the incredible sunset or the joy of having all those cams to sink in the oh-so-willing crack system on the second pitch.
incredible route, awesome onsight, way way fun. way.
4/4/5 Did this one again yesterday, last route of the whole gathering (everybody else had gone) - I led the bolted pitch this time, nearly sketched when trying to fiddle a little wired stopper wire behind a big crystal that split a wee pocked. PTC would have been nice, there. Downclimbed a step or two and traversed to clip the bolt without incident. Belayed in the big big big hueco - fun! Weirdo crack up higher, very polished and flaring but still good jams - tape would have been nice; good tape!

Definetly cool route, be careful making it up to first bolt, but not that challenging, just be careful.
