3 out of 5 stars half way there > [

I started up this route with hopes of continuing up Gallwas Crack on the upper tier for a full pitch trad lead to the top of the main wall (easiest way to top of main wall). Finished Handyman and got half way up Gallwas and the forearms just gave out on me and had to rap down off a #13 stopper. Very dissapointing but It's a great trad project to the top. Little difficult to find a good stopping point to place gear on Gallwas.
