Not sure why the OP has attracted dislikes, as it sounds like a proper adventure!
My only disappointment, from the write-up, is that it was felt necessary to bolt-protect some of the climbing. Maybe I've just been lucky and found routes that could be done without, but I've always considered a large part of the tepui challenge as being to climb it UK-trad style (albeit with the acceptance of some bolted belay or hauling points). And yes, I do appreciate that lead-bolting can be considered a part of US-trad. Having said that, I'm aware of having clipped a bolt placed on an earlier attempt when we first climbed Autana, so the whole issue is clouded with grey areas!
I look forward to reading further updates, and good luck to the team in finding better rock. It's a world class objective.
