hey good report!
for my second wall i just did this route in a push finishing this morning.
really loved it especially the pitches 4 through 6.

i'm pretty sure the #4 HB offset that i cleaned is yours,
really weird as i went to clip it i thought i saw it move so i tapped it with the nut tool and it popped right out.
let me know if you want it back, i know how they're kinda pricy as i just bought some of the new DMM versions.

Thanks for grabbing that. I sent you a PM.

I'm glad you enjoyed your climb. It is stellar except for hauling those last few pitches.

Pitches 4-6 are definitely the steepest and most fun of the climb.

Wow Zack!
I find it incredible that you grabbed that piece for Bill! It has me on the floor looking at the world in a state of awe. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. Especially since I know how much Bill treasures his gear. Trust me, if it came between me and his climbing rack, his rack will win. It is also why I like him. "Priorities man, Priorities!"

Bump... fun pics.

We just topped out on this rig ourselves just about 24 hours ago. Super fun!

Zack, I think you guys were just topping pitch 3 as we were getting to the base. Nice work on the push.

hey yeah thanks.

yeah i think when bootying it's too easy to cross the line from honest find into 'bad karma on your new piece cause you know who owns it' which can be no good.
got your PM, i'll send it out in a day or two.
