A direct line avoiding the loop on Giantslayer. It is bold and sustained up the blind crack - take plenty of small wires.

I had completely forgotten I seconded Dave on the first ascent. Probably because was totally gripped and tried not to remember the experience for fear of nightmares.

This is a dangerous route!! The climbing is steep, very thin and technical, the rock is crap and the gear is even worse. I honestly don't think any of the gear Dave put in would have held.

Check this out on an ab or as you lower off from Giantslayer before commiting yourself.

As usual, an awesome lead from Dave.
