2 out of 5 stars Valley View

Not a very impressive route really. But it is relatively clean and offers nice views as the name implies. A couple of interesting slab moves. We did the whole route in three pitches with a 70m rope. Did 5m of simul-climbing at the end. We used no trad gear up Valley View. Went up there to do Lip Burner and I backed off under the chossy roof. Too fricking chossy for 5.11+ trad for me. With Jason.
