Description:

Fifteen long, hard pitches on immaculate stone. Mostly vert, techie, and a bit heady. This is THE proud tick in the Potrero.

Did it with David Potter and Micah Jessup over two and a half days; badass climb. led some pitches, followed some, jugged some. the second pitch felt the hardest, David onsighted the 12d on pitch 12. Techy and sustained, but not as scary as I heard. Last day was the best day of climbing I've ever had.

Onsight Onsight ascent by: david_smithrock on 2006-01-13 (View Climbing Log)

Great route, not as hard or scary as you may have heard. The crux is either the 2nd, 6th, or the "naranja" (12th?) pitch, all rated as 12 or 12+. I did get two of the cruxes, but we were switching leads, so it's not a true onsight of the whole route. Definitely a route to do again. The bivy at pitch 4 is cush as well.

jugged the entire monster so Mat could get the onsight. Was quite a ride and a very long day. 16hrs base to base. Couldn't hold my toothbrush for 2 days afterwards...
