Onsight Onsight ascent by: brinosaur on 2012-08-02 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Ego boosting!

Badass line. Definitely the standout in this area.

Unless you climb this as an eliminate (underclings instead of the obvious horn on the face), it's pretty damn soft for the grade. I have never come close to onsighting 12c, and redpointing at this grade usually takes a concerted effort. While I'd love to think that I was having a moment of unusual strength, I think the real grade is 12a or b.

4 out of 5 stars Juggy and steep.

I tried this on my fourth day in a row climbing, so I was not up to the pump. Fell once. It was not hard for the grade, but you need to be fresh for it (at least I do).

5 out of 5 stars Very good.

Part of Clear Creek Golf. Better than Slammer. Blew the last move clipping the chains. 1 Fall. Really really fun.
