Making Peace With The Almighty On The 2nd Pitch of \'Stigma\' (C3+F)
Dave leading up the 2nd pitch of 'Stigma' (now C3+F vice A3) under rain drizzling skies. The start comes off a 2-bolt belay, climbs an ever thinning crack (C3-), traverses right past 2 bolts (there were 3 at the time but I blew off one, shearing it in the process....just sling the stud!), and on up past 15 consectutive fixed heads (#2's and #3's)....very spooky!

JP -

Thanks! It was a fun lead. Got in some "flight time" on that one but not where I expected. Good to see you posting your photos on SP. Good to have you here!

Cheers,
Dave
