4 out of 5 stars Did both pitches today

First pitch is great, but, very limited gear opportunities. 2nd pitch has a couple of very interesting moves. Will that hollow flake fall off the wall?

Onsight Onsight ascent by: mathdesj on 2012-10-21 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Hmm, wonder if that loose flake would hold me...

Let someone else figure it out and leave it alone! Surprisingly secure 2-finger pocket just to the right anyway.
Did P2 after P1 of Three Doves. Multiple insecure and committed cruxes made this mentally exhausting as an on-sight (at least for me). Wouldn't lead this if not solid in 5.8. Great climb though!

4 out of 5 stars Felt rather nice today

I found feet that were never there, moves that were easier than I remember. Fun climb. Thin in spots, committing in others.

4 out of 5 stars Fun One

Many great climbs in this area. This is a great one especially if Arrow or Limelight is taken. There are many options for finishing the second pitch on Hawkeye, Three Doves etc..

5 out of 5 stars Tricky

Felt much harder than an 8. Very tricky climbing in a couple of spots. Fun finish through the groove.
