took my first leader fall and I wasn't even leading
We did it with 6 pitches... swing lead, Al went first.
5.8 first pitch, 5.7 second pitch, 5.8 third pitch with a couple of 5.9 move... took a long fall while traversing the ledge. Got scraped up and bruised pretty good, but pushed through to the top. Al led from this point forward. Fourth pitch is the crux, particularly as a handhold fell off to make topping out the chimney roof a 5.9+ move. I ran out of steam by the fifth pitch because I didn't have lunch (squirrels stole it) so it was a blurr... probably 5.8, as is the 6th. Then it's a class 4 scramble to the top.
