5 out of 5 stars First Crack Ever

Awesome. Felt crazy at first to transfer my weight into a finger crack and hold myself out there like that. Im used to face climbing, but that was amazing. Unfortunately im now addicted to crack....:(

4 out of 5 stars Aid

Aided this one at 8:00am with snow at the base. Really direct simple aid, good practice. but do it an early winter morning when the breeze is freezing your finger tips... that added some spice.
