Time Wave Zero. 23 pitches, 5.12a. It only has one pitch of 12a everything else is 11- or under. Some do it in one day but 2300 feet for me is grade V. I plan to check it out when I get there in a few months.

Scariest ride in the Park, plus 40 pitches, rated X.

Use with -extreme- caution.

You do not want to drag a portaledge up this crappy-ass ridge. You would be much better off going up somewhere on the Outrage Wall and hanging out for a night. Timewave Zero would be an option but it already has a perfect bivy ledge on the 12th pitch.

Why don't you check out El Gigante's 3,000' wall. Has a few aid lines where you want a portaledge. Cerro Blanco is a 1,200' wall with a couple aid lines. Both walls' aid lines were put up by Carlos Ayala Garcia; simuchi.com is his website. It has topos and maps. Helpful if you read espanol.
