Direct NW Face  Sucess!

With Steph A. We did it in two pitches. I led the two 5.10 pitches as one and recommend same. I also agree it is soft for Yosemite, more like 5.10a. Crack can be wet after a rain which can add a bit of spice. An exposed to ledge slab mantle move near the very top was prob the crux for me.

Very interesting  Sucess!

climb with Michal. He wanted to me to lead the 10.c pitch, then passed the belay and launched into the 10.c territory while thinking that is the 10.a lieback - haha for me, not so much for him.
Great climb (3 pitches in 2 hours), did this when driving thru Tuolomne back from SRA on TC.
Will be back.
