Re: excellent!

Brutus,

the topo's been field tested ;) and passed with flying colors. One thing I'd add is a #5 Camalot works well on the 25 foot OW at top of P2 - no 6" Big Bro needed. In fact, one needs to walk this large piece while climbing (Big Bro is probably not that good for this). My two cents.

Re: excellent!

Thanks for the test drive!





The Big Bro I actually used on pitch 4... as a leaver.





Not needed, ya think?





If so, I'll revise the topo.

Re: excellent!

Brutus, don't change the topo - it's very accurate and what I said just reflects personal preference!!



That's funny what you say about levering off the #4 on P4......personally I used the luxurious bolt (with 2 nuts on it....I'm sure meant to make a more positive foothold) to stand on thru. there.



:)



Cheers and thanks for the quality submission!

Nonononono..



not "lever", "leaver" i.e. I left it that is to say placed it and left it behind.



I left it instead of clipping the bolt. as I didn't like the way the rope ran when clipped to the bolt
