Kamikaze Variation  Sucess!

We started up with the intention of climbing Kamikaze Roofs. Led P1 straight up through the Kamikaze overhangs to the tree. Glen lead P2 up the steepening bowl and belayed below the dihedral. P3, continued up the dihedral and accidentally passed the final roof for the route and ended up on a comfy ledge next to what I think is the Hubris route. P4-5 traversed left and followed Hubris up to the final saddle and took the 5.6 direct variation to the summit. Wish we found the final overhang but had alot of fun nonetheless. Topped it off with Chase the Sun on the Sunset Flatironette. 5 classics to go!

challenging bugger  Sucess!

w/prakash-swapped leads, this was a challenging climb for me. we may have gotten slightly off-route as i went straight through the initial roof(5.7/5.7+), and took a minor fall on a tricky slab. the remainder of the route was hard enough to keep one's occupied especially at the crux(if one's on-route) where i struggled to pull myself through the final sequence, before straightening out my mind.

overall, a fun climb and i can't wait to challenge it again down the road!
