Put a bolted belay at the top of the first pitch of Fastest Indian yesterday. It seems after talking to a few people the first pitch is a classic mixed pitch in winter, good fun but not classic as a summer pitch. The rest of the route isn't worth climbing as it deteriorates into a broken series of slabs and gullies festooned with moss like an old witches hair. The climbing on the first pitch is about grade 17.
