Solo, with a crash pad. Yes, I am a bas ass...

You too? The best part of soloing with a pad is dropping it from the top of the climb on the way out.

I actually hauled a small rack up this thing. The rhodos were probably better protection than any of the cams I placed, though. If you are going to bother hauling a rope up there, you can rap off of a nice big tree that will drop you right back to where you started.
