Description:

An interesting route, not really an R. The first pitch is deceptive, harder than it looks, with possibly dubious old pins for protection. Second pitch is the business. A large cam protects moves out over the roof past two bolts and a fixed pin (use a sling, not a biner, on the pin). Then comes about a 10' runout, safe enough (with air and good gear below). Plus, you can fiddle in an RP or TCU along the way. Third pitch is easier, but still interesting.

5 out of 5 stars Crusoe & Wiessners

Sweet climb, got to lead the 2nd pitch, nice but intimidating to the bolt. Take a #4 Camalot

Also lead the chimney on Wiessners, the R rating is "WRONG", unless your carrying a big Big Bros, otherwise its Do or Die to the anchor, so pack em both and breath... Belayers note for the chimney on Wiessners, keep outta the shooting gallery.
