Flash Flash ascent by: crw5074 on 2014-08-30 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Classic!

Led both pitches, flashing the second pitch direction variation (had led standard route a year ago). Hard to say if the std 2nd pitch or the direct variation is harder and/or more fun. Both are great. Pulling the roof is easier than it seems at first - get bomber gear, ringlock, stem, and get to the jugs. Felt easier than Modern Times.

3 out of 5 stars Felt harder than a 9 today

This is a challenging finish for a shorty. Hard to work the feet to get in position to grab the jug.

5 out of 5 stars figured out the move

Did the climb as a single pitch, bottom have was soaking wet, made for some interesting climbing. I finally figured out how to move up the crack on the direct exit. Jam both hands and find the huge jug out right. All good.

4 out of 5 stars good fun

Really liked the first pitch. Second pitch was too short, but lots of fun.

5 out of 5 stars Holy cow...lots of jamming

I seconded and had to clean a nut out of the jam. Lots and lots of fun. I need to do it again, although I was clean, it seemed like an awful lot of work. Need to work my jam technique.
