Onsight Onsight ascent by: plaidman42 on 2014-01-30 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Soft rock

The route didn't quite feel 11b, with beta it could go way lower but onsighting had its challenges, there's a jug ready to pull on the last bolt before the anchors.

4 out of 5 stars might as well have been onsighting,

but was on this once years ago. ended up climbing straight through the crimps at the crux and ignoring the arete.

4 out of 5 stars caustic cock!

most recent guidebook omits the latter part of the name.

really fun movement with some out of view holds to keep you guessing on the onsite attempt. too much steep climbing during the days prior to hold on for the finale at the top. expected a cap on that varnish hold at the top, but there was none. I wussed out and took. :(

4 out of 5 stars The prettiest line you ever did see.

What a great position. Winter sun had the left hand hold feeling warm and cozy while the right were frigid..
