The climb has excellent protection even though one crux, the under cling traverse approached via a ramp, only fit two cams of the four on both placements. This did not bother us. The other crux had bomber #9, and other Stoppers, and 1 1/2 inch friend placements; only I was in the middle of three and tied on to two ropes. I clipped the hale line attached to Bill instead of the yellow rope attached to Mark for the last 3 placements of 7 heading into the crux. When I fell I shot out onto the bare wall and took a 50-foot leader fall. The heat from sliding down the wall put small blood blisters on my toes and tips of my fingers. I could hear the rope ripping threw the gear and Bill screaming because he was feeding the second rope out to reduce rope drag. Ripping the rope threw his fingers gave him white burn marks on his hands. I have climbed this route many times; it is clean, good belays, and exciting. To air is only human.
