4 out of 5 stars Stuck in the crack

Just after the tree I initially followed the massive crack which vears slightly left. I got stuck in here a bunch, feet, arms, until i couldn't jam anything in!! It was too big for any limb but not big enough for all of me. I ended up going to the right onto the face for this move. Next time I'll try the crack the whole way up.

3 out of 5 stars Bring Bigger Gear!

So this was a burly crack for me to lead. Super fun first section in getting over the lip by the tree above. Then the crack gets wider and I see I have all but one big piece left, a number 4 BD C4 camelot. I had not yet learned the art of inching up my gear and this made for a bit run out scramble to the finish. Made it just fine though and had a scary blast doing it!
