5 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

I followed Steve on P1, and then we rapped. I think this was the hardest pitch I have ever climbed clean, and that I did it on-site(no....I don't watch my leader for beta while I am belaying; I keep my focus on the belay!) made me feel pretty good. I did start to come off at one point, but saved mysefl. Woo-hoo! This climb puts a good variety of techniques into play, and though the routefinding is easy, the sequence holds are fun to figure out. Both Steve and I found ourselves cleaning holds of lichen to make our sequenes at points. Once the new Nears guidebook comes out, I have no doubt this line will see more traffic. I think it may be one of those "hidden gems."
