A sweet treat to do a long climb with Dow again after years of not really climbing together much! Lots of fun had :) Great social time in camp, too with a bunch of friends, what more could you ask for!
With Peter V. I led the two OW pitches on the Polish route....which is the spectacular climbing on this route but not the crux pitches in my opinion. Depends what you are use to. After the 2nd OW pitch, move right into the chossy corner for three pitches. The middle roof (Iron Curtain) pitch is the crux. Fun and well protected just hard to nail it on-site no doubt. After those three pitches which get you on the left shoulder of the Hulk. One meandering long pitch will land you on the 2nd half of the final pitch of Positive Vibrations.
