A desparately thin line to the left of Airy Interlude. The first pitch is both hard and scary with not so great pro. The second pitch has good pro, but it is way thin. Your calfs will be burning after this one! The trick is to climb fast! (This is a great TR. Rap from the top rappel anchors for the descent off the Witch and use nuts and small cams to set top anchor. With 2 - 60m ropes you can TR both pitches of Pegleg and Ankles Away)

It's "Ankles Aweigh," like the song "Anchors Aweigh."

Anyway...great climb (gasping for breath). Typical Needles corner: stem, palm, fiddle with gear, repeat.
