Chuck said he drilled on P5 (American Zone?) 3 bathooks up and right after a few hooks.

Troy and him told Peter after they got down what they drilled because they could not find the "natural hooks"


As I remember they had just done a very early ascent of ZM and would have been in very good shape for Aurora which at the time was the 3rd ascent I believe.

Joe used natural hooks...even though a couple of them were exploding flakes of rock on us and I was pretty certain he was gunna whip onto the portaledge!

There are bathooks on most pitches on the route.

Wow. Lowest common denominator I guess, not that bat hooks are that confidence inspiring
Sometimes the difference between a layman and a journeyman is simply what he is allowed to believe himself to be.

How are the anchors on Aurora, Lambone.

When I go up there next spring I'll try to avoid as many bat hooks holes as I can and when I'm cleaning the pitch I'll fill them with epoxy.

Anchors are all bomber ASCA bolts. Aside from the top of p4 which is natural with 2 fixed pins.
