(still have to double log-on. damn)

I'll make the question more interesting. What is the recommended sequence if you are soloing? Like, do you haul to the top of boot flake, then lower and swing with two lines (haul and lead) or what. (I used to hear about a midway anchor that made the swing easier; I guess its gone now?) I can imagine it could get tricky to think through the perfect approach. Or for me its usually, I figure out the correct approach only after trying a couple of wrong approaches. An hour or two shot right there. ha

I disagree with Werner, you should probably get a good idea of what you are going to do before you get to the top of the boot, so you don't get there and spend three hours trying to do the swing like alot of unprepared d#@&%ebags do...

Just I don't think anybody wants to describe it again on this website. That's what the search function is for.

Years ago, Rock and Ice had an article--the one where "Beta" came into common parlance (from "Betamax" the video format)--by Bob Yoho about how to climb the crux boulder pitch on Astroman. It was a play by play with photo sequence.

Pretty controversial at the time...
