Nice d00d! Was this lap # 2 for the season? Looks fatter than when MD and I did it... no fair!

Good to see studying for finals isn't interfering with your extracurricular activities ;\) I'll see you soon!

For anybody else thinking about this route: you can run pitches 2 and 3 together with 60s and a tad bit of simul climbing.
