Description:

Squeeze up the opening fatty to the dihedral. Layback the dihedral to easier climbing and a belay ledge. The second pitch is easier and fun.

5 out of 5 stars Felt hard for a 5 today

Maybe we were tired? The chimney is a pain in the ass. I obviously need to learn some chimney technique. Five stars for P2...it's a hoot.

2 out of 5 stars once is plenty

to be fair the rock was wet when I climbed this so my experience was likely tainted by this fact. it felt difficult in a not fun way.
