3 out of 5 stars rough start

Once you're off the ground, this gets fun.

4 out of 5 stars good, but not stupendous

I enjoyed it, the moves to the anchors were nifty. However, I'm not sure why this is a 5* climb. Not to say it wasn't good, but not necessarily one of the absolute best 10's at the Red. 5th Bolt Faith was just as fun, and that's only given 3*.

4 out of 5 stars no faith

I knew where the bolt was but didn't trust myself to get there. Took a couple falls going for 5th bolt, redpoint on 2nd try. Not a single move on this climb is harder than the bottom of Plate Tectonics.

3 out of 5 stars exciting is one way to describe the finish

Definitely spicy for 10b. Extremely delicate balance at the top.

Top Rope Top Rope ascent by: delphyne on 2009-11-14 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars TR clean

Nice moves, one slightly cruxy section but otherwise quite straight-forward (at least on TR, I'm sure it's trickier on lead).

4 out of 5 stars endurancy

Felt harder than 10a, but then again overhangs are not my strength.

4 out of 5 stars warmup

Fun slab. The bottom is not as bad as lena_chita reported, it must have cleaned up considerably since then. First 3 bolts feel like a completely different climb from the top part.

3 out of 5 stars surprising onsight

I almost never onsight things, especially 10a, especially as the first climb of the day. Nevertheless...

(Granted, given how easy for the grade the other 10's at this crag are, this was probably no harder than 5.9 also.)

2 out of 5 stars non-trivial

Almost took a fall at the anchors; that would have been embarassing!

Red Point Red Point ascent by: delphyne on 2009-11-09 (View Climbing Log)

2 out of 5 stars broke a hold

I powered my way up off the ground the first time using a certain crimp. Then my partner found a better way, using the same crimp in a nice balanced stance. Then I tried it his way, and broke the key crimp. Managed to find another way off the ground for the redpoint. Broken pieces of rock everywhere on this route.
