One of the better routes I did in the course of a week at the Tower. I used a lot more than 8 pieces of gear, c3 cams were very useful in pin scars. This loooooooong pitch climbs like a slightly steeper version of Cathedral Ledge's "Book of Solemnity."

5 out of 5 stars Awesome.

8 pieces of gear. This route made me start doubling up on finger size stoppers.

4 out of 5 stars My first trad 10c onsight!

quite pleased with getting this. Had a scary moment at a point where the crack closed up, my gear was a small C3, and I nearly fell, but other than that, I enjoyed it...

5 out of 5 stars I aided the beast!

After knee surgery I could only climb ladders. Aidders are ladders right? Even leading it on aid I got puckered.
