2 Legit 2 Quit  Sucess!

With Shane R. from the Grand Canyon. I led all the pitches. 3rd pitch is superb and why the line was established no doubt. Cool exposure as you chimney out to the large roofs edge and lock into a chicken wing while you engage the off-width. 1st pitch is decent. 2nd pitch would be great if the rock quality was better. 4th pitch was poorly planned (contrived) and thus detracts from the route overall. 5th pitch is uneventful but leads to the eventual summit of the buttress. If not for the poorly done 4th pitch, pro, etc, this could easily be a 4/5 star route. Still worth doing for sure.
