Everything went free– the route and the gear. Study this pic (photo to come) and then make your way to the base of the Hallucinogen wall in the Black Canyon. After some inspired ledge scrambling, a new OR centrifuge jacket (men’s small) and a timex watch (that i have now abandoned twice in the bowels of the black) can be yours! Then go free climb the Hallucinogen wall. It’s incredible and I appreciate what a satisfying all out effort it required from me. Here’s a link to a Rock and Ice blurb about Brad Gobright and I completing a 3rd free ascent.
Really just go and get near the wall and your sure to score something for free. The aid climbing party unclipped Brad’s #4 camalot from the pitch 15 anchor bolt that we intentionally left it on during a reconnaissance. I guess they thought it was free.
