5 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

On Saturday I freed every pitch of special sauce. For the second pitch I climbed the finger crack and put a long runner on the first bolt of the aid section then went left from there. “What a scary pile of…!” I fell once and took the king swing, as I was un sure of the appropriate sequence, but mostly because I was scared…and couldn’t reverse the moves. On the second attempt I was a bit more adventurous and ventured even further left. I got to a spot with good feet and sloppy hands where I whaled a baby angle in on lead; it took about 15 minutes because I was so pumped that I could only get in a few taps before I would have to shake out again. With the baby angle in..(I really should have placed a bolt)… rotten rock I pulled a heady move to a small ledge. From there the route was some OW lovin… I thought the pitch might be around 5.10R…maybe 5.9…”the jury is still out.” I placed a bolt at the top of the second pitch to belay from….I hope you don mind….if you do you can funk it. I also contemplated placing one on my free variation…

This is one of the best routes in the south fork, It consist of a great four pitches of moderate to easy adventure climbing. A fast party links pitch two and three.

Megan wouldnt bivy with me up here. She said, "I'm not that kind of girl matt." the pillar register needs a new tablet, there were so many beer cans up on Suzi's Pillar i think someone was must have been working the new "sitdown jummar start."

Cool route! great last pitch off the top of the pillar. Some sick slab/sport climber could probably pull the A0 part free.
