Here's another one for you guys. This led to a bit of soul searching afterwards. I thought twice about how candid to be but it is what it is. Hopefully it will serve as a warning if not a disincentive.

I think this brings me up to date so far as rope-soloing is concerned.

Epics make for good reading, thanks again for posting. Great that you were still able to get up and out - Shows how important it is to have a bunch of skills up your sleeve to deal with errors (forced and unforced!)

Thanks. Great reading and an admirable effort, it must have been very spooky on your own.

For the crux on the first pitch, after getting to the bolt around the arete, IIRC I tried an RP in some nonsense seam (which blew) then a two-lobe shallow Totem placement (which blew) then finally getting across to the next crack by hooking.
