Hooks And Heads
Yours truly following up to the 3rd pitch anchors of Bear Claw Headwall, Kerkhoff Dome (a dicey rivet and a old Leeper bolt). Ropeboy lead this pitch (A3), finishing on hook holes and rivets.

*NOTE: The last placement is a fixed #1 copperhead stuffed in a hook hole.

Yes, we did. Got spanked again. By the time we got to the top of this pitch, we were looking at more "search" for hook moves (Kenny Rose is a sneaky bastard). To find 'em, one must almost top step each hook move and then search the rock above with your finger tips for blind hole placements. Although, one would think that 4 pitches of aid can be done in one day...NOT HERE!!
