What's more enjoyable?  Going high or low on the 2nd Pitch Traverse of the Book of Solemnity.

 The low rt is pretty thin for 5.9 not sure about the upper move. I hear it is pretty easy if you are tall. the big thing is to PROTECT YOUR SECOND on this pitch. It is easy with double ropes but with a single you MUST solo to the anchors. Do NOT go arround the tree either. i heard a horror story from a guide about a newly wed couple  were the husband put gear in the wide crack with a single rope and she came off shattering her ankle severly. Not a good way to start your honeymoon :-[
