4 out of 5 stars Hard but good

Hang Dog on the crux then started again and got it right. A far bigger clean climb than I have ever done , running on empty towards the end

07/05/07: This line was scary. Not sufficent/suitable gear(again!)
Lessons for next time:
1) Go straight up to the roof, don't traverse from Hangman.
2) Take more than one cam bigger than BD#2. UPDATE: 03/07/06 Lead this line again today Not so scary but still grunty.

Extend the last cam placement on the bottom of the block to avoid the rope getting jammed and subsequent downclimbing for your second. Gabe (sbaclimber) saves the day with some barefoot prussiking!
