Finally -- no snow this time  Sucess!

This is one route where body type influences what is easy vs hard. The crux seemed relatively easy to me (especially on way down), but there were a lot of blind corners where a 5'6" frame made it a bit harder. Big thanks to Jim E for leading, and to my co-conspirators Barb S and Mike B. If I did this solo, I would leave a few more slings, and bring 100-120' rope (or 15mm webbing).
