Re: That

It's actually not that hard, only 11a. The crux is near the lip where the crack get too wide for hands. I found an easier way to do the crux. I grab the side of the big hole visible in the photo, and reach over the lip, just above the big hole with right hand. Then kick the left foot over the lip onto a good hold.
Happy climbing,
Marc

Re: That

nice looking gem Marc (& ditto on on Martin's comment). I tried something that seems to be similar in City of Rocks a week ago....perfect hands through an overhanging bulge going to fists (#3.5-4 camalot) just as the angle kicks back to vertical....so gassed from hanging on my arms/fists that I fell though I was past the curx :)
anyway, nice shot.

Re: That

Thanks Radek, I know what photo you're talking about. It looks great the way you're hanging in mid-air. It shows how overhanging it must have been.
