Lurking Fear first 3 pitches
« on: October 01, 2015, 09:20:59 pm »
Will be doing LF next week and was wondering if you can aid the bolts left of Window Pane Flake?  I know it's the free route but are the bolts close enough to aid or stick clip?    I'll be trying to make good time the first day and was wondering if it's easier to take the line of bolts rather than take the window pane?    It would be nice not to bring a ledge and was shooting for the ledge off to the side of pitch 10.  Thanks.

Window pane goes pretty fast and was a quality pitch.

Seems like if you are going to be shooting for 10 pitches in day 1 you'd be stepping out of the aiders quite a bit and free climbing. According to Erik Slaon the free version of pitch 3 aids with a few moves of 5.10. No clue how long of a cheat stick you'd need?

Maybe go and climb the first 3 pitches day 1, rap to the ground, Bivy at the base, and blast to top of 10 with no ledge day to. Top on or Thanksgiving Ledge day 3?

Cheers,

Prod.
