stuaart 6 Sep, 2014 Lead dog Team ascent. Ed got halfway, I finished it with his pre-placed gear and a couple of rests. Route has great moves; hard to onsight them (for me at least). Very mean for HVS (two obvious 5b+ moves in it although very well protected throughout). Nearly had someone fall on top of me as he lowered off route to the left of this (gear popped)!
