Climbed with Dow on another cold day, LOL. Amazing route. One of my all time favorites. A few technical sections thrown in with steep climbing. A splitter hand crack with loads of face holds. Don't miss it.
Radeks notes way better than any guidebook as is the norm. Way too damn cold and I should have known better as much experience as I have at RR. My bad for leaving my jacket in the truck too. Would like to return under warmer conditions so I could appreciate the route a tad more. Look for 65f in Vegas to make this partially comfortable. Too much wind coming out of the canyon. I led that 2nd pitch which is fantastic by RR standards, no question about it. After reachy left hand edge move, I thought the pull above was not overly difficult. The hand crack above was great, thank god since I could not feel my fingers anymore. Placing gear at will over a long pitch is why everybody talks about bringing so many cams. Enjoyed that upper 5.10a pitch as well, gave you a little bit of everything as you twisted, turned and pulled your way through that corner. The 5.8 was also outstanding for the grade. Hit the Rad Cliff on your right on the way down to do Azkaban Jam to extend the day.
