Description:

When I did this route in the late 80's, it hadn't gone clean yet and I nailed some on the upper pitches. But now this route goes clean. It's five pitches of really good aid climbing. Lots of big pin scars which take great stoppers. Expect to use hooks in boxed out pin scars. Rappel the route.

4 out of 5 stars Big holes

Even back in '95 the holes were pretty big. The line is amazing, though.

Finally went back to do this route clean. It was very fun. Took a 15-20 footer on pitch 5 when a bathook hole blew out. Climbed the route solo in 1-1/2 days.

this route was sweet! i took a 25' fall on the second to last pitch. The climbing was great and so were the stopper placements. i hardly used any cams, during the whole climb.

This route is a great example of why certain routes dictate the use of Ron Olevsky's HAFWEN technique. This route ascend such a beautifull buttress, but those pin scares are pathetic. Follow the gaping holes! I was saddened on this route. Climbers should make nut placements out of pin scares way before this happens.
