3 out of 5 stars This sure doesn't feel like a 9

I crimped up the face to the right of the corner. Very 10+ish to me.

3 out of 5 stars It was soaking wet in the corner.

Making this a much harder climb today. I chose to work the crimps on the face to the right. Felt 11ish to me.

2 out of 5 stars Ape and Essence

A pretty good and often overlooked climb. Even without the piton at the crux (which has no business being there), one can fiddle in strenuous but solid tiny nuts. Second pitch is sub-par.

What's with all the toprope ascents?!?!

5 out of 5 stars Hard work

Maybe I was beat today (too much climbing, too little sleep), but this climb seemed hard. I ran it twice and did some variation near the top where I traversed on to the face, total hands, as there were no feet.

5 out of 5 stars Ape and Essence with One Finger

Right at the beginning there is a one finger hold that's insane, this was really technical and tough.
