4 out of 5 stars Not a clean climb on my first try

Lost it on the crimpy crux moves and swung out right and could not get back to the crux. Need to come back and try again.

5 out of 5 stars Superfun classic

First experience leading eyebrows at this level. Lead first three pitches, then seconded to the parking lot and took the 4th class variation to the summit. Amazing rock quality with unique NC features.

4 out of 5 stars Dry on a wet day

One of the few routes we found on a day that the rock was still drying out after rain overnight. Very fun eyebrows and cracks though

3 out of 5 stars Tricky start on a wet day

My first day at LG. Rock was wet at the bottom, which made the start tricky. There is no solid protection for the first couple of moves, so with the slab wet I aided up to a pre-placed cam and then free climbed the rest. Fun intro to climbing at LG.

Second Second ascent by: MonkeySpank on 2013-01-12 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Slabby face variation on second pitch

Seconded up the first crack pitch on a wet day. Lead the second pitch, but the corner was running with water, so we moved out left to the top of the corner and climbed the thin face features for a few moves before it backed off again. The slabby face probably goes at 5.9, and I peeled off it once, but it is relatively well protected by plugging gear in the crack in the corner below.

5 out of 5 stars Beautiful Fall Day

With the leaves changing color at this time of year, the Park was packed. We started out around 9:30 and beat the crowds, climbing with partner Evan. The views from the top were awesome, with sunny skies, no wind and temps in the 50s-60s. As it warmed up, ladybugs swarmed the South Face!
