Intro/Strategy

Shortest Straw is fun, thin climbing on mostly good rock. This is an excellent first El Cap A4 route as it is short and follows better rock than Zenyatta Mondatta or Lost in America. Shortest Straw sports all the variety of aiding--hooking, pitoning, heading(fixed), but these sections are often interspersed with rivets or good cams. The Grey Circle section of the climb is incredibly fun and exposed.
