Hand Line

Pete took this shot of me using a hand-line that we set up for the steepest section of the route. Photographed just below the summit May 31, 2009. Posted with permission.

Pro/anchor?

What sort of pro or anchor did you have for this?

Re: Pro/anchor?

We used one sling around a large horn to put in this hand line as an assist for the descent. We didn't bring any pro other than runners. The route does not exceed class 4 if you stay on route. But if you are planning to climb the peak this year, plan for lots of loose rock and a lack of snow. See this trip report from last weekend.
