2 out of 5 stars .

bleh. Did Gaucho Marx (not in RC.Com) to start, which was 5.10ish PG, and didn't find it particularly bad but just not great. The moves, though strenuous, are solid and some runouts are required but if you start to fall lean in...

Onsight Onsight ascent by: Abaddon on 2009-03-20 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars Orange what?

Pretty sure we were on the correct route. Took the bolted line on the right, up to the first belay in the crack/pod... offwidth heaven/hell after that, depending on who you ask. Can be done in 3 or 4 pitches, scramble down the back of the saddle at the top to the rap anchors. One 30m rap gets you to the ground. Definitely was not having fun leading the steep chimney/offwidth pitch, but on the way back to the car I was thinking "hmmm... that route was kinda fun"
