followed Outside Corner Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2008
Am I the only one vain enough, and desperate enough, to like to see Wasatch technical routes in my climbers log section? Surely other SPers have climbed here. I followed Outside Corner in 4 pitches. Not being very skilled or experienced at technical climbing, I can list some superlatives about this climb. It is my longest tech climb to date. It is the hardest 5.7 I've climbed, and the one I've fallen the most on. I'm not sure how much of that is due to the difficulty and how much due to being tired from the length; after all, I didn't fall on the first pitch. One fall on pitch 4, where it veers right, sent me in a pendulum off-route to the left, but it wasn't too hard to traverse back. Unfortunately, I didn't know at the time that it was part of Jesus H. Christ on a Bicycle Wall, so the specifics of my cursing were not appropriate to the setting. That said, I had a blast. My favorite parts were the whole first pitch, and the double crack on pitch 4. There were several other really fun parts. I'm just not too great at roofy parts.
