Consolation  Sucess!

With Shaun P. Ok route, tons of traversing left. Did the 5.9 in the open book (Wully Sport), then rapped back down to the top of pitch 2. I highly recommend this, could be the best trad pitch on the wall. Then mixed in some 5.9 sport thing to the left vs finishing pitch 3. Combined pitch 4-5 no worries. The traverse on 6 was quite fun, particularly around the arete...don't go down as the guide suggests, but up and across. Quite sporty. The new raps actually trend skiers left. Old rap line is straight down, but man killer block awaits on rap 2. My rope started crow baring it as I was in free air mode. Some nasty karma going on there. Did trace afterwards, a 4 pitch 5.10d sport route to the right...very, very nice. A must! Cheers.
