Jim Donini on pitch three

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Jim Donini on pitch three

This was fun and wide with bolts. Jim had a tough time with the next pitch due to rope drag. The next pitch starts right about 15' around the corner. Maybe move the anchor closer?

The last pitch is a bit green. Some looseness too. But easy. Just wander up and right to a good spot to stop and belay.

Gail on pitch 3

The bolts on this line are nice to have. Makes for a fun outing. Great route I totally sandbagged in my mind because I'd first climbed it in the late 80s.

Brent's Direttisima

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Brent's Direttisima

Brent went right; shoulda gone left. Even so, his variation finish is a great 10ish problem on steeper rock. We went left to easy ground after the crack. Good job.
