I like my Petzl Meteor; light and well ventilated even for a hot day.
Never "tested" though.

YA- this one will be tested.. a one time deal for sure.

I even am gonna dig out the old 11mm's for cleaning and maybe even get Donini to help.. I don't want to be the oldest one killed

I like the Petzl Elios. It's a hard shell so it will last longer than a soft shell helmet. It fits my head well and I have never been too hot it in. I usually forget it's on actually.

John, it sounds like you might want a clunky bike helmet instead.  These (for example Bell) cost about half as much as a climbing helmet but weigh significantly more than a Meteor or Elios (mot a problem since you will only be wearing it cleaning the route, right?).
BE CAREFUL.  We do not want you or Donini or anyone else killed in this endeavor.  Be sure to give us the details once this undoubtedly awesome route is in the books and done with.
