The exposed 5.4 friction...

The exposed 5.4 friction traverse on pitch 16 (the last pitch). The rope can be seen in the lower right corner. This is easy friction climbing but can be spooky for the leader given the exposure and the fact that a fall would entail a nasty pendulum (less spooky for the follower because you would pendulum in the opposite direction, toward trees). See Royal Arches Route in June for more.
