3 out of 5 stars Scraped and bruised

My two buddies really got themselves wedged in the crack on top of the triangular ledge and couldn't stand up. My thighs got prett scrped up on that ledge, but I stood up with a little strain. The next move, getting over the rounded part was my crux. I hung from my left hand, just smeared up with my feet, and just powered it. I got a few more bumps, scrapes, and a really sore left hand. It was kind of like bouldering on a rope, because there wer only two hard moves, which were like boulder problems. We had scrambled up from way right, over by the Class 4, to top rope this.
We also climbed a route to the right of this, an unamed route not in the books, using the same top rope. It had a couple lie back moves that were the crux and the rest was easy. Balance and strength made it a work out, even with only a couple tough moves.
