What's the story with Grim Reaper on the Barber Wall? Looks like a nice line... Webster gives it 10d R but the new Handred is noncommittal - "a challenging lead". Anyone been on it? Could you call it PG13 with all the newer toys? In internet parlance... am I gonna die?

Not a lot of gear near the top, i would bring small tcu's/c3s and aliens and even then its tough to get the gear in.

kenreville:
It's a great route that is easily protected- except for the crux- which is right near the top. As terminsnout has said, TCU's are helpful.

krankonthis:
save a number 3 camalot for the top top.  there is a super good placement, #9ish nut and red alien, and then you have to gun it a bit.  brushing the pine needles off the top can be a good idea too.  super good climbing!

strandman:
