3 out of 5 stars burly

Finally got this one. Reaching into the Masochist crack or the wide crack out left are off route. Not sure how you could call this 5.8. Harder for me than "Powell Face" or "One Cut Above". I think V4 might be fair. May be a little easier for tall guys. Very cool "tweener" problem.

1 out of 5 stars Agreed with the previous comment...

Not worth the hardware. Would be glad to see this disappear into a quality patch job. Anyone?

4 out of 5 stars Wild and fun

But not safe for a lead. 5.10 smears get you to the first bolt. A piece of gear might protect you from the talus, but it'd be pretty far away and to the side at that point. The bolt protects a lunge (for shorter folks anyway) to a sharp crimp and the start of some sustained, technical climbing. The moves are consistently thin and hard to the end, well above the second bolt. The addition of a couple of bolts to this would make it a quality, stout lead, but as it stands, it's destined for obscurity. Significantly harder than other 10.c's on the crag. 5.10d/11a R/X range in my book.

3 out of 5 stars Fun line deserving more traffic

Tricky moves past the first bolt/bulge are steeper and more interesting than the average Echo slab line. Standard smearing above...

Second Second ascent by: trenchdigger on 2009-09-21 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars Contrived, but fun if you just ignore the "rules" and climb...

Using a right hand crimp on the arete for the start move and heel hooking the arete makes this a fun V2/V3-ish problem. The V7 version - avoiding the arete completely - is contrived and way harder.

5 out of 5 stars OS

Just as amazing as all the hype about it. Super fun. Misty skies added to the challenge. Wasn't sure we'd be able to finish.

3 out of 5 stars Cut Above

Finally actually worked on this thing. Maybe 10 tries to get it. Easier than Powell Face.
