It amazes me that we could all have so much trouble with that one. I know I'm always thinking ahead to the next pitch when I'm leading through there.
I didn't recognize it since it's one of my least favorite climbs of it's grade, so in 25+ years of climbing in the Gunks, I've done it maybe 5 times. And P1 of High E really blows. I've been up to the HE ledge more times via Directissima than via HE.
