4 out of 5 stars Pro Choice

That key pitch is on some incredible black rock, typical of high up on Brownstone Wall. Just one 5.11, well protected move, which I did with a balanced reach on slick rock, my partner stemmed it which I thought was more difficult. My move might be height dependent. NOTICE ON RAPPEL. I have climbed High Anxiety and knew there was no lower rap as per the book description, but thought a rap station might have been added out left. Not so, we had to leave a biner on one of the bolts on the 2nd pitch of High Anxiety. At the top of the 3rd pitch of Pro Choice on a huge ledge are two rap stations. The right one leads down to the the 2nd pitch station which needs another link or biner, then doubles should get you to the ground. The left one is the one that no longer connects lower down, but is where you need to belay that 4th pitch.

With Dow Williams. Led pitches 2 and 4, he and I both did the crux differently. A fine climb, watch out for tricky rappel descent: there is only one rap ring atop the second pitch. Hey Flamer, I'd give it 5.10b/c.
