Overhanging Hangover, 5.10a
..you look up at the roof and say no way it can be turned at 5.10a without aid, but there is a tiny finger crack with a few tiny foot placements that make it work.

Thanks Dan. I thought the first pitch was more like 10b to be sure. Some tough slab moves. Radek has climbed it as well, curious if he felt the same way. The 2nd pitch follows a decent crack until you get to this wild roof deal. It is sparse moving out (this photo) but well protected. From below, you would just assume it would go at some badass grade, but not the case. Pretty cool route, but definitly never climb this one in May...need to avoid the "Birds"...cheers

yes - I thought first pitch was thin but fortunately I let my wife fight the toughest battles for me!
