Description:

Superb! An overhanging start provides some interest and can often prove the killer for some. The next part of the climb is smooth, although the small roof can be tricky, finishes off with a pumpy crack that runs up the slab.

4 out of 5 stars My First Trad 22!!

Awesome awesome climb! wasn't feeling confident, but I just hung on and sent! gear in hand. Bomber gear too. Used 4 cams after the bolt - a yellow then green alien, then .5 BD and then bomber 1 BD to top out. Not the best gear for the start tho...

4 out of 5 stars My first 22!

I was working really hard to get up this one. Plenty of hangdogging once I got onto the crack. I was really pumped.

I somehow managed to dislodge a chunk of rock off the top face though. I was laying back off the crack, and knocked off a block about 25cm long, 2cm thick and 6cm wide. Pretty scary stuff. Never had that happen at Morrie before.

Damn that getting past that overhang is hard ... after a few first attempts I just went ballistic and ran up the farkn thing - with positive results :D

(dunno if that counts as a hang dog since there were breaks between attempts then last attempt was clean)
