Les and Jannette - nice work!
Near-dumb - there IS no comfy position to place the gear, which is why on my hubristic attempt back in the day, I chose not to bother, kept climbing, and took the big ride because of it. Wheeee!
Cliffmama - time to change yer profile, I'd say yer trad lead limit is a tad higher than 7+ now, eh? "if not too pumpy" - as if.
I guess if it was worth doing, it was worth doing it twice.
I've still gotta get back there and tick that one off. I've since followed it, but haven't had the chance to lead it again.... so many routes, so little time.
(I got CCK Direct last week; so now The Spring, Le Teton, and Retribution are topping my current to do list - mebbe I should add MT as well?
edited again to add:
knocked The Spring off today, and WASP also for good measure.
And as a bonus, got The Winter clean on TR - sweet.
