Gear from #2 bd nut (or smaller) to .5 C4. Peanuts and doubles of 00, 0 c3s useful. Much Safer with a thin KB hand set in the old pin scars. High Ground fall potential near middle of the route. Don't be pounding pins into this, it's been done clean.

4 out of 5 stars It goes free.

Just got miffed today because people are still pounding pins in this... This route has seen at least three ground up leads with traditional placed on lead pro. Hell, it saw three toprope ascents today at the tour de hyalite. Do not pound pins in this route!

3 out of 5 stars at night, in a blizzard

driving KB's due to wetness, cold, and wind... Scary that way but still worth it.
