I do it with two ropes now...but I used to just solo the upper portion of Upper Refuse as DMan suggested with the .75.

Two ropes is the best way in my opinion, but using the bad dogs belay (next to the small pine tree) is the only place to belay for watching your second.  Here you can bring your second up Webster's unabridged or watch them make that weird little stepdown move after the crux.

I love that climb!

I watched a Quebecois woman slide off that traverse during a thunder storm, she shrieked at the top of her lungs and someone in the houses below called 911, fire trucks stopped at the viewing area with N Conway pd.
