10 pitches. Free climbs the first 10 pitches of Salathe up to the Mammoth Terrace. Easy escape of 4 abseils down usually in-situ ropes. English grade E4 +. The crux pitch of Freeblast had no holds as far as I could see but a few bolts to pull on though a skyhook would have been useful as well. An airy free climbing intro to the front face of El Cap.

sparkass 4 Sep, 2015 AltLd On route to Salathe. We free'd the lot, all be it with one or two falls. I managed to onsight the crux slabs, the lower slab pitch being one of my favourite pitches ever. Headed up Mediterraneo(A5) by mistake, but quickly rectified that!
