setting out on the traverse of "Handrail"

Nice, not a route that one often sees in photos. As much "footrail" as "handrail", though.

A quality photo, Does the use of massive cams reduce the grade of the route at all? I've got a size 6 camalot that hasn't seen the light of day and would love to use it but I don't climb E2.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys...
The big cams dont really reduce the grade as you can gear it with normal sizes "threaded" over to the front face...
Not easy at the grade!

Nice pic. Did you both get up it ok? I see a lot of people sitting on gear on this route.

Great shot. Though the caption 'on the crux of Handrail Direct' might have bigged it up a little more.
