A masterpiece of route finding that links a series of subtle features on the SE wall of El Capitan. Long, sustained but never extemely hard. Architypal blank-wall situations. First climbed not long after the Wall of Early Morning Light and it shows: the first ascentionists took exteme care to minimise the number of drilled holes. QUOTE Duncan Critchley - who gives it A2 but given A3 in the current Supertopo.

Sutton, Porter, Burton & Nelson 1973
