Wow, what a gnarly approach (and decent).
We got lost on approach, ran out of light right after the squeeze and had to bail out onto the parellel gully. START AT DAWN...

THis route is a total adventure. We started up a cool bulge to crack. Got off route up top and did some scarry hard moves (harder than 5.7) with bad gear and loose rock. We got a late start at 11 am and topped out at sunset. Almost had an epic but hiked out to Careny Springs wall in the dark and made it to the truck at 8:30 pm.
The belay I set before the crux was off the biggest cam we brought, 3.5" I think? And the BIG hex, yea you know which one I mean. Another cam about thin hands size did good in there too. start early!
