Battling the runout
We decided to climb one of the easiest and classic routes in the Naranjo. The South Face Direct which is a 6 pitch 5.8 that everyone said would be a walk in the park. This picture is me battling with pitch 5 on the South Face. Rated at 5.8, this pitch is well within my abilities, but as I found out (and not being very acquinted with that kind of limestone yet) there was not much gear available on the pitch. In this picture, having left at the belay the only piece of gear that could protect the upper part of the pitch, I am battling mental fatigue while running it out 40 feet to the belay on technical, slabby terrain.
