I led P1 (5.5-ish?), and then Ted led the real stuff through the roofs. First roof is really a delicate traverse around it with great hand-sized gear in the roof. Ted did a great job on lead, but I tried something that didn't work and took some tension to get back on. Second roof is a jug-pull-through-throw-up-foot move that I'm more used to from the gunks.
Great lead Ted!
Saw a spotted salamander and a striped one (skink?) sunning on the rock while belaying Ted.
The 2 hangs are a blast. The undercling is awkward as heck, especially with a slippery right foot, looks impossible from below, but doable. The 2nd roof is not as hard but just as fun. Reach up right to a great handhold and throw in a high left heel hook into the horizontal crack. Walked off left and rapped from the Rib. Kudos to my partner John G on his first Gap 8 lead. Great stiff.
awesome route def has to be done in 2 pitches. WE TOOK A SAW AND CLEANED THE CORNER GUYS!!!!!!!! so now there is no excuse for not climbing it becasue its overgrown. Undercling the main roof with high feet and good gear. Run up the slab aabove the first roof to the second and heel hook it;top out.... FUN FUN FUN
