Um, this is 5.7??

Um, this is 5.7?? (view)

After I bought my rack in summer of 2001, I began testing my limits rather early, getting on 5.7 and 5.8 climbs right away.

This climb, "Harlequin" 5.7, shut me down completely in Mount Nemo. The full Trip Report is archived at the google URL provided. The picture pretty much says it all. A small DMM green TCU slotted behind the flake, with enormous overhanging flakes and cracks above me... I was in way over my head. After putting in 11 placements before the roof, I had run out of slings, and was forced to retreat...

I may go back one day and seek my revenge. This was in June of 2001.
