Mmmmm.....goooood rope!

I swear Etsuko is biting the rope!

BTW: this picture shows where the crack flares a bit. That flare has spit me out several times! The climb goes from a nice, consistent lieback to something else. The flare is the crux.

Sam, thanks for posting. This is the first time I am seeing my dearest one on this route since I was setting up the Dinkum TR at that point, up above. She'd like the photo!
