Amazing route fellas! Congrats on a prize proudly fought for.

This thread needs Die Valkyrie playing while we scroll through the posts...we're all singin' it in our heads....

This will have to do.

Finally, you guys realized the potential I've suspected exists ever since I first laid eyes on a large format photo of AW.

Congratulations to the FA team - this is an ultimate route, and what climbing is all about, IMO.

Really looking forward to some on-the-route photos.

I'm guessing this isn't the only free route possible with this level of talent and effort...

Classic line on a spectacularly inspiring formation!

Serious question. How easy is it to bail from the belay stations? Do those bolts have rings on them?

Stunning line? Check.

Bold Cassini approach? Check.

Way the f*#k in the back country? Check.

Sounds rather boring, except for the casual stroll into the clubhouse.

"NICE?!" Jaysus! Major fined.

"F'n bad-ass." Hoorah! Ku-Doze!

Looks awesome. Since hiking back there I've always wanted to bring a rope next time I'm in the area. One of the most amazing places in the Sierra.
