Onsight Onsight ascent by: Yeebie on 2011-01-30 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Crack lovers variation

Did the first two pitches of Crack Lovers. Start is off width and takes a #4 Cam. Face moves make it reasonable. Second pitch is solid hands to fingers. Good pro. 5.9 at the top. Third pitch is a bump and grind at the start. Too wide for a #4 so bring larger if you don't want to sweat it. Roof above is terrific with one fixed mangled cam above. Short day so exited across the knife edge on top of the buttress at the base of the high exposure exit. Down climb thru tunnel to trees and across ledge to Coke Bottle Rap anchors. 2 60m double raps to base. Gotta repeat w/ other variations for the HEE. Super rock.

4 out of 5 stars Good run

The top of the 2nd pitch of Crack Lovers variation after the OW pitch has got some tough moves that would be pretty surprising for a 5.8 leader as it felt 9+ if you know what I mean. A lot of gear fixed on the route for whatever reason. A good line but not a great one because of the meandering.

4 out of 5 stars Truely a Classic

Did the true classic route. Pitch 2 is a classic fun chimney. P3 start of the flake hard thin moves way to stick it Jodie! The high exposure across the traverse on bolts to exit is way cool and very exposed. Beautiful views.

5 out of 5 stars Definately Classic!

Did almost the same variation as in the description.. Reunion to crack lover's to the top of the buttress and then beaver cleaver exit. Found high exposure a little too runout! Beaver cleaver is harder but safer, with an exciting 5.8+ mantle about eight feet above the last bolt!
