Linked up after Nutcracker in the morning. Climbed the Trial by Fire start variation... beware the 2nd pitch connecting TbF to Super Slide. Rather than dirty 5.6, we found 5.9+ adventure with a sketchy tension traverse. The upper pitches of SS are fantastic.

Loved this climb. Had fun, although got stuck behind an extremely slow party doing nothing for a very, very, very long time. Dark and mean clouds approaching as we were finally getting to do the last pitch. Several parties had to bail because the extreme slowliness of the pair in front of us and the rain seemed to be pouring anytime. We shared our rope with the two behind us to rappel, for their friends had to bail and they were supposed to share each other's ropes in order to get down. Long story short, as us four were rapping, the rain finally came down. Suddenly cascades everywhere on the wall all around us. Super Slide? Water Slide! And of course our trail-line got stuck coming down from the 3rd pitch (good thing we got an extra rope from the two); of course for whatever reason when I reached the end of that rope on this pitch it was a giant mess, a mess which I had never seen before and I was a few feet short to get to the safe ground to anchor in. While trying to resolve the mess, we'd got three big guys shivering above, not knowing what was going on. Some excitements! In short, everybody made it to the ground in one piece. And their friends were actually waiting for us in a nearby cave! The only fatality is my beloved phone, which was stored in the outside pocket of my backpack. RIP, Hazel! In spite of all these little adventures (and inconveniences?!), I really did enjoy the climb. BTW, the new friends went up again the next day; they all made the climb and retrieve our trail-line. So, not so bad. It was not so bad at all.

Soloed the first pitch. Led the following two pitches with Ski taking the sharp end on the top two pitches. Good rock and the usual amazing Yosemite scenery.

Led last three pitches. Great fun !

P2 was not as wet as the last time, but there was some moisture to avoid on P4.

Fun climb! Either I got a little off route on the second pitch or it was was just a loose and dirty pitch. Linked pitches 3 and 4. The 5.9 finger crack at the top was too wide for my fingers and a little too narrow for my hands... still managable though, just an akward size.

The 5.9 pitch is thin hands for me, not off fingers. Nice. ;-)

did only the first 4 pitches (started too late in the day for november to finish the climb). the 3rd and 4th pitches were a lot better than the first two.
