Seconding trad makes Yanqui feel weird
Trad climbing in Balcarce? Yanqui trying to get untangled from the rope while seconding the first ascent of the 5.11a overhanging chimney: This May Feel a Little Weird. Put up in classic grunt style by Mike Pleinus, this route certainly does make me feel weird. After cranking the crux roof move to gain entrance to the chimney, I inevitably wind up facing outward, as in the photo. Thus I'm always forced to do a strange, 180 degree rotation, to turn the final roof and finish the route. The no shirt and shorts offwidth style requires extreme care with body friction, so as not to remove skin from the body.
