EL MATADOR. Rhode Island\'s...
EL MATADOR. Rhode Island's own Pat Horne demonstrates the "back-step" style of stemming that makes this pitch (5.10d) so reasonable. "Its NOT difficult, its mearly strenuous". Protection is readily available, at all times, in the left hand crack !! ......Take a moment and look at DIGITAL EXTRACTION (5.11c), the Steve Hong route that is directly to the right...and glance at McCARTHY WEST FACE FREE VARIATION (5.10b) that is to the left, pulling over the right side of the dark roof and following the wider crack above !!!!
