With Jackie and Steve. I led the two crux pitches, both requiring typical run out traverses on cheese grater limestone...swinging back into a solid corner if you fall...basically typical EEOR trad. Neither pitch was overwhelming though, however, I was starting to curse on 2nd traverse (P6) until I saw the the lower bolt. Traverse straight over and reach down to clip. One more bolt, piton needs to be hammered back in, mostly run out, but easy climbing for the grade. The first traverse is truly a mile long, but has 4 bolts across as I recall. The last one is hidden until you commit into the corner. After the initial corner, impossible to protect, just runout on 4 bolts.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
