4 out of 5 stars Amazing climb

Very cool moves over roof #1. Roof # 2 is very mellow. Lots and lots of great climbing. Very enjoyable.

5 out of 5 stars Graveyard Shift

Same comments as JAGwire below, I fell after the crux and lower 20 feet to a no hands rest - bummed to blow such a test piece onsight but still a good time. Route protects well with Black Diamond c3 and Aliens, this much have been scary back in the old days. Like every route I do on the Mac Wall, this is my new favorite on this part of the cliff.

5 out of 5 stars Heads up for sure

Had the wrong size gear for the crux. Glad I didn't blow it.

Onsight Onsight ascent by: blueeyedclimber on 2010-04-19 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Awesome!

Really nice, but very heady lead. Was psyched to onsight this one. I notice it says 11a here, but Williams gives it 10d, so 10d it is.

3 out of 5 stars Hard for 5.10

This would be 5.11 a/b at the sport areas, but this is the 'Gunks, after all.
