There and Back Again  Sucess!

Not overly impressed. None of the pitches offer any sustainability. The short face on the 4th pitch is the most interesting, but short lived at that. The descent tree mentioned in Handren's book is gone. We descended after the 5th pitch to the bottom of the Painted bowl where there is a significant tree, albeit a ways from the edge. We left rappel tat on one of the sturdy limbs. Tons of loose rock, so pay attention on this rappel. If you swing a little to your right, you will find a bush rappel (decent shape in 2008). With double 60m, you will make it down from there (200'). If not, there is another rappel utilizing some scary shit about 100' down.
