Reaching for the belay at the top of pitch 8. The free climbing wasn't too bad (~5.10b) to avoid the tricky C3 pin scars in the middle of the pitch, but the hooking/mandatory free climbing at the end of the pitch felt near impossible w/the epic rope drag.

The the tear in the portaledge after the first night, you can see our haul line hanging through the hole. A much longer tear formed on the outside of the ledge along the outside bar/frame peice!!!

Happy to break out the portaledge for the day, and from here on out the wall is steep enough that we were able to haul our ledge open for the next 3 days until would would have to put it away only 2-pitches from the top. Here Ryan looks down on me as he l

I've done a lot of tricky cleaning on ascenders before but cleaning the diagonally downward traverse on pitch four was way physical and a little spicy. All the gear in the traverse was soooo manky looking and if it popped I was looking at a epic swinging
