    Looks like a nice day Doug! But no spiders in the cold... I've always exited up the ridge between Hog 1 and Hog 2, how does the crack exit compare in terms of time and effort?

    Thanks MiCamp your hook assessment seems spot on, we played with cliffhanger and grappling hooks but as you say they make a precarious anchor. An ibis type hook is the way to go (sure just read the...
