5 out of 5 stars Great independence day route

Wanted to climb crying time again, but with a line on arrival at 6pm we opted for DNF. What a route!. Every pitch will grab your attention. I peeled off at the crux but I had just placed a bomber #2 cam which held just fine. Start of p3 was a little bit tricky, but with the sun setting I decided to pulling on my piece and expedite the climbing. Topped out in time to enjoy the last bit of sunset and drink some wine.

4 out of 5 stars Nice end-of-day jaunt

The crux - though very short & easy to protect - seems 10c to me. It felt very tenuous - harder than Bombs Over Tokyo. My partner wanted to hike the day after Oz, but when he got back late afternoon Saturday I suggested we do a quick run up DNWF of Lembert. We linked the first two pitches, but did the last two separately - probably a good thing, as rope drag on the 10c finger crack crux, or the 5.9 slab at the top would not have been fun. I think we did the route in something like 2.5hrs. Not a record to be sure, but it fit in nicely at the end of a rest day.
