5 out of 5 stars really long climb

p1 took 5.8 crack of wong climb up, p2 keep your gear clipped on the right side of your harness up this chimney/crack, easy over hang. p3 went right then left up crack to blocky over hang. p4 looks scary but 5.6R slab has good foot placements and is over in a few moves up and right to douglas fir. p5 WTF, go up to this down facing flake and man up, go left of and up small overhang on left side of flake. p6 I'm done, going the easy 5.5 route up an right.

4 out of 5 stars Woohoo!

Don't do what I did, make sure to lieback the OW using the 1" crack >< easy and fun. The 5.6R (???) I never even found, the 5.8 felt 5.6 after the OW.

4 out of 5 stars Long variation

Started with p1 of the Wong Climb, and finished off an unkown 5.9. Was a really enjoyable and relaxing climb altogether.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

We did P1 of Wong Climb (5.8) totally sustained 120' vertical secure hand crack. P2 was a real humper (OW). I had to downclimb and ditch my pack, as I was on lead. During P3, it rained, and Dave slipped off the roof, fell backwards, hit is head, good thing he wore is helmet (always). Fun climb that was a lot of work. I'm definitely going to repeat this one, since P2 was not pretty. I'll get out of the offwidth crack next time, right at the diagonal chockstone.
