Surrealistic Pillar Direct Finish
The original looks so much better. Unfortunately we missed the traverse and ended up on this chosspile. Loose and runout on easy terrain. Fortunately, the beginning (and G/PG) pitches are still classic. Now we know what to do next time.
I ran it out from the chains on the first pitch and went 200' straight up. I should have stopped @ 40' lower and belayed from a comfy ledge instead. This seemed like the natural way.
(I, 5.8): Nice wide crack. A combination of off-width techniques and well placed dikes make this an enjoyable if sparsely protected climb.
