4 out of 5 stars Hardest 5.9 at MG

This is the only 5.9 at the Gorge I didn't send on my first try. Definitely old school 5.9. IMHO more like a 10 because it's sustained and varied climbing - not one move of 5.9 followed by 5.6 moves like the Owl. Thank God for the rest after the first bulge. Probably my favorite climb at MG.

3 out of 5 stars Slick

Had a tough time cause I kept slipping out. There are some ok jams but even those are a little slippery. The top offwidth section is interesting.

5 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Rock was really wet, which is weird cause it did not rain the day before. I've been here before when it was raining the day before and the rock was dry. Weird.
