Birthday Party  Sucess!

Led all the pitches with Joe K from Dallas. The first three average pitches were worth it to get on that 4th pitch which definitely utilized the best varnish on Community Pillar (not the route, the pillar itself). Did not have to be told twice to finish on that beautiful 5.9 varnished corner on Honeycomb, that is such a fun pitch and the second visit just as enjoyable as the first, worth the bushwhacking. A 70m rope does the Community Pillar raps no worries, 6 raps total. You do have to do a short 2nd rap and stop on that ledge with the fixed nut and boulder rap config. All in good shape in 2010. Climb Small Purchase once you are down at the bottom, pull the rope on that last rap and it will be stacked at the base of the corner ready to go. Good single pitch for the grade (5.10).
