I had another hummingbird encounter on this climb. It came up right behind my head as I lead the crack on the second pitch. Too wide for my hands, so I ended up taking. I led the 10c slab final pitch and took a fall. I just love every climb on the papoose so far!
Anytime we climb at the Papoose, we are alone. This amazes me. There are 3 excellent 5.10 multipitch routes. The approach is 5 minutes! Papoose One was not as good as Centerfold or Hairpin, but it was not far behind. Good route! I led pitches 1, 3, and 6. Tiff led 2, 4, and 5.
