Just got off west face. Great route with lots of parties on it. We brought a ledge and ended up climbing two pitches a day. Damn it was slow. But hell it was the most relaxing wall I've done in a long time. The route is all there, loads of fixed gear.

Good job! Had you done the route before? What was your favorite pitch?

Two pitches a day?!

that's a vacation, not a wall.


How much beer did you pack?

This was my fifth time up the wall. My favorite pitch was the roof on pitch nine. It's nice and steep, fixed and really short(90 ft). A total no brainer! As for climbing two pitches a day it was indeed a vacation. We had three parties in front of us and all within three pitches of eachother. One hell of a muletrain!!
