Fun and with my new EB’s
First crack climb on TR P1.
Short approach and short/easy 5.9 crux. OS, in winter early 2012
The last time I did this is TR years ago (P1 only) during my first climbing trip to Yosemite.
This time I lead P1 and P2. =)
Climbed a couple of times while staying in the valley.
great warmup climb for the day in Jamuary. don't miss out on TR'ing the two climbs to the left of P1. They felt a bit soft for their grades but they feature some outstanding climbing.
Have climbed P1 a few times, but finally got the opportunity to lead P2.
The short approach makes it an easy one to knock off if you don't have much time or just want to sneak in an extra few pitches after work. P2 is soft for 5.9. Both the 10's below P2 can be led with thin pro, although you'd have to be a solid leader. Easy to TR both pitches after leading for laps.
Done probably four or five times over the past 30 yrs. A great climb to cut your 5.9 teeth on, just get there early. My wife and I ran up this one morning and had three parties waiting at the base when we rapped off 30 min. later.
