There are rap anchors with two thick quicklinks to lower from. Great route. Bouldery with long reaches and bad feet.

In 2007 I called in nearly impossible. 9 years later I concur... A few more inches on a any one of several moves and it would have been miles harder. As is, feels 13a or b (ish) for me at 5'8" with an even ape. That said, some of the coolest moves I've ever done.
