Fun climb  Sucess!

Did with Jacob...I led Pitch 1 and 5 and fell trying to lead the dumb chimney section Jacob describes below on the end of pitch 1. So I made a trad anchor to belay him up 60 meters and start his first lead up that chimney. Rest of the climb was good granite...wasn't a huge fan of the thin slab at the start of pitch 4 though lol. The start of my lead up pitch 5 was interesting too. Chicken head section at the upper part was weird but fun. Can't wait to do outer space now :)

Orbit  Sucess!

Climbed with Matt Lemke, led pitches 2-4 and 6. chimney nonsense on the second pitch was definitely the crux, even though the next pitch was more technically demanding and the one after that was more heady, had the worst pro, and the most exposed feel. definitely concur w/ the PG-13 rating Kramer gives it, although my worst runout was on the low fifth section at the top that i could have protected more but didn't because it was so simple (huge chicken heads).
All in all it was a pretty draining climb, more mentally than physically, as none of it was at all pumpy. it's just sustained 5.8 for all but the first and the last pitch
got a couple ticks also.

Loved it  Sucess!

Super fun... first pitch solo, we found the awkward stem on p2 to be the crux. Several mountain goat encounters at the summit and back at the base.

Ah Yes  Sucess!

Ran up this with a good friend. Varied in contrast to outerspace. Not sure why every time I go up to SCW I end up thinking all the routes are going to be like outerspace. Couple of crimpy moves in the midsection and some runouts at the top. Seriously fun route. If outerspace is busy jump on this.
