A week after climbing the North Face on Burgundy Spire next door, Shirley & I came back for this amazing line. This time around we went car-to-car and of course Blondie accompanied us...as did our friends Jim & Haydar. We climbed it as 2 teams of 2. Did I mention that it's an amazing line? Beautiful granite crack climbing in an alpine setting!
