5 out of 5 stars Rojo,

Multilargo (2); esta muy bueno esta frente a la pared del Outrage, vas siguiendo la grieta (se ponen coquetas de repente) en los dos largos (5.7 y 5.9) hasta llegar unos cuantos metros debajo de la punta. Se puede hacer un tercer largo de unas cuantas placas para subir hasta la cima. Descenso: se puede hacer el rapel de la reunion del segundo largo directo hasta abajo con dos cuerdas de 70 mts.

2 out of 5 stars This was not a fun climb

It's awkward, chossy in spots, run out between bolts and not at all fun. I thought both pitches were harder than the 10's we did the day before. The second pitch is sustained and awkward. I have read all of the comments below, I seem to be the only one that thought this was harder than the 9 rating. Perhaps my offwidth skills are lacking?

3 out of 5 stars Spires

Fun climbing to the top of a spire. Easy, good practice for your multipitching skills. A bit chossy in places...
