3 out of 5 stars fun in the sun

Simuled the first 2? pitches with Salamanizer. Very nice finger crack up higher. Almost got the rope stuck on the second rappell back to packs at start of climb.

3 out of 5 stars -

First few pitches arn't that great. One fist move over a buldge into a troff and its easy sailing walking up the arete outside the offwidth. I wouldn't say this route is an "offwidth", as you don't have to offwidth anything. Last pitch is some 4th class crack to a short but really good 5.8 finger crack. Two ropes gets you to the ground in 2 raps. Otherwise its several traversing raps back down the route.

5 out of 5 stars Bats in the crack

Really good climb. No wonder it's considered a classic for the area. I followed on this one. When I got to the final pitch with the cracks up there, I struggled to dislodge a nut from the crack, and when I was working it, I heard a squeeking sound (thought it was the hardware doing the squeeking). I peered closer into the shadowy crack and saw a little bat looking at me and shuffling around in there. Interesting finale to a cool climb.
