6-February-2005: K. Chaltikian leading a line on the Main Wall (WI4). There is a belay station with bolts and a rappel biner just above the bulge in the center. We traversed and climbed to the left (he used rock pro on the traverse). Less than 1.5 pitches with a 60m rope.

Thanks Carolyn ! Here is part of the conversation from that climb after cleaning a couple of screws :

Me: "Waaaah ! I'm so !@#$%^ pumped ! Lower me please !"

K: "I can't hear yooooou .... whaaaat, you're pumped ? Just hang there and shake out !! (chuckle)"

Me: "Uh, ok ..." (huff, puff)

Definitely learned a few things about resting on that one. Afterwards we went back and toproped that section - still freaking hard, but at least I didn't have to hang.

Good stuff. I agree that it is much harder to second a pitch than TR it. Handing by one tool while you take out the screw gives a good pump on steep ice! It is great practice for leading that grade though.

Nice pic!
