5 out of 5 stars Finally !

After falling twice trying to clip the last bolt (left hand giving out both times). I finally redpointed this sucker! Ive climbed a grade harder, but for some reason this climb was kicking my tail. Learned a lot though. Incorporated some rests in my strategy before going after the last bolt. After the clip I was pumped and cruised to the anchor.

Onsight Onsight ascent by: tharris242 on 2011-08-18 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Best 5.8 I have ever climbed.

Ever so slightly overhanging somewhat pumpy jug haul. One of the few onsights I have enjoyed.

Can be identified by the little brass placard screwed into the wall.
