Onsight Onsight ascent by: dirtking360 on 2008-01-10 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars One of the best things ive done with my life.

Highest class 5 climbing ive done yet. Only did 14, signed the registry <3 Mom and DSY Live Steele. Not bad for two Pa boys swingin leads. accompanied by Andy Wheeler Hildebrand. We got stuck behind so slow ass dudes, sat at every anchor for at least 20 min waiting for them. Ground to ground took us 10 hours, coulda done it in 7 and we dont consider ourselves fast climbers. Worth every penny. No falls or weights! We loved the first 10c and the 10a off the 3rd class ledge! second 10b is pretty slabby too, ate that stuff for a snack!

5 out of 5 stars Relaxing

This route is a fantastic pleasure cruise. One rope, a few draws, and you can fly. We did this route (including the 12a final bit) in 11 pitches--you know you can combine any two pitches because you can rap with one rope! With simul-rapping you can get up and down this thing in a few hours. Very civilized.

5 out of 5 stars good fun route

Excellent soaring route. Last pitch (12a) was on full on aid mode. Other than that, we onsighted every pitch. Thanks Magic Ed for the route.

4 out of 5 stars Yankee Clipper Wed Mar 21

Partner (Chikara) and I swung leads and onsighted the regular 13 pitchs and 10b bonus. Chikara led the 12a with one take and I, well, got to the top. Nice exposure on the 12a, particularly with the strong wind. Incredible view. Started 10:30 am, summitted around 5:30pm, back on the deck (in the rain) at 9:40pm. A day well spent. My feet hurt. Only hung on the 12a pitch.
