Shirley and I climbed this very fine line with Jim and Haydar in a car-to-car outing (+our dog Blondie who chose to remain at the base). This was a couple weeks after doing Burgundy Spire and so we were grateful that these guys were there to motivate our lazy asses up the nasty, shitty approach gully. What a great line!! Crux for me was 1st half of P5 (thin hands to short fingers) before the OW. Stellar rock & brilliant climbing all the way. OW was not terribly bad as it's a couple degrees below vertical (OW on final pitch is indeed easier). The opening pitch has white, Sierra-like granite.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
