Swapped leads with Zack. In 4 pitches. He, lucky for me, took the first very run-out pitch. I didn't go far enough to the south on p2, so we missed the chickenhead and did something more like Roach's variation #2. It is definitely interesting getting on this rappel! Not as bad as I had expected, though. Once started, it was fun.
Fun day in some less-than-perfect weather (wind advisory). Kept other climbers off though! Very cool route and steeper than other "classics" of the same grade. First pitch is definitely a test in run-out slabyoneering. Cool rappel too!
I led this one with Chris and Derrick. Fun climb. Couldn't wait to do the rap, but the approaching weather brought along gusty wind that put the rope into a tree and made for a fun time trying to get it out. Great day none the less.
