All but the last pitch with Dow and Michael. Great rock and every pitch sustained for the grade.
2nd trip in four days....had to show Zach L. the route, we have both been wanting to do this route for so long and just never got around to it. First trip up with Michelle from LA a few days eariler but we did not do the last pitch that first go for lack of the right gear, just had not planned on doing the route that first trip. That last pitch is the feature, no question. Zach and I both asked, looking up, how could a hand crack be 5.11+? Well it is sustained and the last few moves really test your strength no question. We did the whole route in 5 pitches with a 60m, just simul for a few meters on those first two pitches. If I did it again, would rap with a single 70m. Plenty of trees around and pulling the knot in this kind of terrain is a pain.
Nice route description as always and glad you got back for the full route.
