4 out of 5 stars Honey pot adventure

This was an interesting climb. Time of year NOT to do it would be when I did it. Angry stinging nettle at the base. Natural spring as well feeds the plants. The crux is about 30' up, where a spidy move with your left leg out behind you gets you up over a tiny ledge.

Interesting note, there was a group up to the right of us on the classic post office crack. They were from out of town, beginners on their first ascent of a multi-pitch 5.8 trad. On descent, one girl was leaping all over the wall. Being careless where she was placing her feet. She ended up sending a microwave down below where her friends were standing. She whispered rock and a couple guys from Utah between us had the presence of mind to yell out rock. Kudos to those guys, sorry I didn't catch their name.
