Description:

One pitch that can make you question your fledgling ability. Undercling/lieback a flake and feel gravity pull you in an unexpected direction. Protect under the flake, and walk it out. The higher you go, the easier it gets.

3 out of 5 stars Quicky

We had a rope set on the adjacent "Rain Song" so I soloed the climb and rappelled from the anchors below the chimney.

3 out of 5 stars first lead at Phantom Spire

It's harder to protect than you'd think for a 5.5 because it's a lieback. It's hard to get down to see what you're placing. I was not happy leading this.
