2 out of 5 stars Decent route, hard on rope

Like the previous poster said, this route is hard on your rope. Best case scenario, everything goes fine but you'll put 10 climbs worth of abrasion onto your rope just from pulling the rope down when you're done. Worst case scenario, you'll do like we did, and get your rope completely stuck trying to pull it down. Recovering the rope was a major pain in the ass. In fact, unless your rope is going to be replaced soon anyway, just climb another route.

2 out of 5 stars The Arete from Hell

This route is not only tough to climb, but it is also tough on your rope. The arete is sharp and the rope is forced to go across it, but at least you can save your belayer side if you move the toprope belay to the far right.

Horrible bolting for the anchors makes drag and rope abrasion a pain. Take slings if you want to set up a TR.

Had big trouble on this one. Just couldn't seem to get a flow going. Mucho hanging.
