Not so impressed  Sucess!

Did C2C (no aid) with Lin. Honestly, not too impressed by the route. Marginal rock in a lot of sections, lot's of rock fall (a little from the leader, most from those above on the East Face), decent run-outs, and other than the aesthetics of the line from a distance, an uninspiring route. Perhaps I built it up too much in my mind with expectations, but not one I'd recommend to others. If you're interested in doing it, our rack of doubles in small gear, a set of nuts (including some small ones), a #2 link-cam, singles from 0.5-2 (meant to bring, but forgot the 3), a 5 and a 6 (C4's), and three mid-sized hexes worked well-enough. Also, a gray alien, red TCU and small nut worked well for the first "thin" belay (which had to have some brush cleaned out of it when I did it).
