underitall 8 Jun, 2014 TR dog Had my ATC in Guide Mode on top anchors (Tied into my harness and as I climbed up kept pulling the slack through, There was no way down other than to continue going up). Didn't stick to the route exactly, strayed to the right after the first bit then over to the left then back on route again. Had a rest about half way too, but no falls.
