So as of right now it goes at 5.6 C1, I bet a free ascent would require a couple 5.11+ moves to get under the roof and a move or two of 12+ or even 13- to get through the roof.

We did a free ascent of the "south" "aręte" which in fact is neither south nor an aręte.

The ascent was assisted by Hal Johnson and Joanne Mcleod endorsed vitamins, fried chicken with jalapeńo and white cheddar dip, as well as marijuana and some accidentally ingested paint fumes...

Kieran rocked a rope harness

We led the route in 3 pitches to broadway ledge and 3 pitches across broadway, which was the crux for sure.

That's so funny, good route choice too. That things super fun. You guys didn't consider those easy raps into the gulley, or would that mess with the fun scale too much?
