18 year ago, I took a day to myself, (as my partner was suffering from Terminal Poison Oak)and solo-aided the 1st pitch of this route.No one has ventured any further until the WildMan from Montana, Patrick K. came for a visit and threw some gasoline on my smoldering embers. Together, with Jessica Kilroy as Faithful Belayer, we pushed the route to the Tower Top. Along the way we found mostly solid rock, interesting aiding and finished in the Footsteps of the Master; Layton Kor, as we took up his exit chimney from his route SABER. The route is characterized by a notable lack of ledges, stellar location, incredible views and very solid anchors. Highly recommended. Beware !! It takes everything from RURPS & Beaks to #5 Cams!! BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO LIVE OUT THEIR DREAMS.
