Second Second ascent by: perelman on 2011-06-02 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars Not my first lead.

I started up this as my first lead. 6 feet above my first piece it popped out and fell to the ground. Looking at a 20 foot fall (climb starts on a ledge that's higher than base) I lost my nerve and downclimbed. Ha. Happy Birthday.

Seconded the pitch instead.

3 out of 5 stars Just top roped

Top roped to see if I was interested in leading it, but I wasn't.

3 out of 5 stars I agree with the last climber add .2 for the head.

Randy lead the slabby section below and backed off the actual climb due to his not leading much else. I took the lead and had a rough time getting the head on strait. Interesting climbing and moves for a 5.4. Pretty sustained throughout.

3 out of 5 stars hardest 5.4 I had ever done

My first CT climb/lead - made me realize how different the scale is here compared to other parts of the country
