I was spotting him on this the other day. Nice achievement! Congats. I am not sure I would go as far as describing it as one of the most amazing lines in NE (lots of competition), but it is very cool, with interesting powerful beta at the start to a very tenuous looking horizontal dyno right towards a pointy rock. The landing is ghastly au natural, but with about 6 pads and 2-3 good spotters it is manageable.
Matt is super strong. Put him on a compression problem and he will crush it. (He still needs to learn how to hand jam though, lol)
