Another year, another go. Man, this thing is so classic. The SW ridge of Long's is sooo fun. I did the exact WITP again this time, but this will probably be the last. I think the west ridge of Pagoda is more aesthetic and direct, so I'll try that next go.

Changed beta mid-redpoint attempt and had some 5th class downclimbing to get into McHenry's notch. Forgot about the ramp description. This is a bit late in the year to do this as there was snow to dodge on Pagoda's north face and the Keyhole ridge. This certainly cost me a bit of time but not much.

For future speedsters: save some gas, and be careful coming down the north side of Storm - the talus is unconsolidated there, and you can really get some big ones moving.
