4 out of 5 stars Big project

There has been lots of talk of this route, the idea of a second ascent, a single push, maybe 1 day, this summer I tried to do it as a single push, I knew I would never be able to do it in a day, I set up two camps and started, we made it a bit under half way before my partner was just too wasted, we went down, I continued over the summer to complete this route in 7 days total with 3 of those days being shorter days, I think 5 days would be a good time, if you try to do it in 24 hours both partners would have to climb each pitch in about 16 minutes total. Not going to talk about beta for the size of the route but ask if you would like
