I don't know that I'd class it as an "introduction" in my case. I've done four other North Wall aid routes as well as a bunch of smaller stuff. (Aid climbing was more common back in the day.)

It's more like a "conclusion" to aid climbing for me. Ozy was an iconic route that somehow never happened, and I'm grateful for the chance to experience the legend. However I am most definitely out of practice (by several decades), so M9's "refinery" (LOL!) is obviously a good idea before launching onto something big.

>M9, TimP, PeterW - best of luck on your Ozy trip; are you going to use Tims ledge ?

I had visions of using my old Chouinard peapod hammock. (If it was good enough for the Gleddies...) However a ledge would clearly be A Good Thing if possible. I guess that's one of the things to be "refined"!
