3 out of 5 stars sick sick jams wish it was longer

The crack was absolutely soaked from a rain earlier in the day. It being sopping wet added spice to the lead. Big gear.

3 out of 5 stars Red point ascent

Led this cleanly with Brian Beavers. Thanks again Brian. Crack was bone dry. Get this climb in this year while the climbing is still good.

3 out of 5 stars All hexes

Enjoyed it. Never seen CH so dry. Was superb conditions. Looked like hex size, so I led it (OS) on all hexes.

While seconding this climb I made a mental mistake while trying to do it with only one arm.

3 out of 5 stars Another fun climb

It took me a couple of tries in June to get this down clean, but it's a fun climb. Climbed with Matt.
