you can lead a pitch below to the base of the toe crack separate. I prefer to do the whole thing as one long pitch with a 60m rope; just watch your rope drag if you do. The toe crack itself is solid. There are a couple good rests for placing pro; I prefer lowe tricams on this route. Have the second drag another rope, you'll need to tie the ropes together to rap all the way down. Be careful pulling the ropes, saw a guy get his rope hung up when the knot wedged in the top of toe crack. That accounted for I think my third lead of the route retrieving his rope for him. hahahaha... oh well :) bastard could've at least bought me a beer in N. Conway.
