5 out of 5 stars First Pitch, B.I.T.D.

I must have got everything correct on the first pitch, including figuring out which way to face under the roof, for my partner's comments during and after cleaning the pitch probably revealed a more accurate description, "Which way did you face on this thing?" and "That must have been pretty gnarly on the lead!"

5 out of 5 stars Worth doing anytime.

First pitch fun and engaging with a variety of techniques from fingers to thin hands and hands to fist, fun terrain to negotiate all the way up to the belay. Not a gimme 10b pitch. Second pitch is super fun with the airy traverse into the cruiser hand jam swimming to the top.
