Poseidon Adventure  Sucess!

With Jackie from Oz and Huck from Roswell. Great times with "good mates". The first pitch is a cruise. The 2nd pitch can be a bit of a slug fest. It is a flaring chimney and you can try whatever method you want, but what I led it with was slow and tedious chimney technique. Avoid those white crystal features, way too slippery. I used a 6", 2-5", 2-4" before I could sink my 3" and 2" and start hand jamming at the end. A strenuous pitch to say the least. Would liked to have had one more 4" which would avoid having to walk a piece. The 3rd and 4th pitches were tame. I have done the summit pitch before (Lonely Vigil) and chose to make that "once in a lifetime is enough" experience. Did everything but the last move to show my mates the way, then belayed them from the upper station.
