I thought so too when I led it, but there are some other 5.7,s hidden in Josh that are even worse, though this'un sure is a kicker.
Yup, it was Parisa and my first route in Jtree and I figured a 5.7 would be a nice warm-up. I had no clue, but it seems the stiff grades are considered normal there. Will know for next time! ;)
We also did the 5.7 Bypass Overhang which was a bit more manageable, but still on the hard side of anything I've done at that level. I guess I just need to get better :)
Is that why it´s called double cross--- harder than it looks?
I think I noticed two crossed cracks on the route which I guess is where the name came from. I could be convinced by your suggestion too, though :)
Gotta love shots like these, who took it? ;)
Since its a butt shot of Parisa,.... I'd have to say...hmmm....let me think of this.... Peter, could you help me out
I really like this shot. Congrats on the send.
