3 out of 5 stars Uncomfortably Numb, Pitch 1 - 5.10a

Not that difficult anymore. Still unsure of which path to take down low around the 3 clip or so.

3 out of 5 stars Uncomfortably Numb, Pitch 1

Good long route with crux toward the bottom. Hang dogged it for the first time 1/25/07 and sucessfully top roped on 2/4/07. Long, steep route that will build stamina and forearms.
