4 out of 5 stars Coarse-Grained Goodness

This year, thank God for rock that works even when wet. Went out to the BAW and climbed this route even tho it sprinkled during the ascent.
Rather than climb the standard line, after the crux headwall, I traversed left to join up with Carpenter & Das' finish, a line we call "Full Recovery".
