5 out of 5 stars Sailed through P1

The crux (for me) are the face moves before you get up to the roof traverse. The roof itself is mild.

4 out of 5 stars Nice climb

Today we did P1 and it was a lot of fun. Key holds were wet, making it a tad harder. Working through the roof and above was burly. Also, moving into position under the roof was a long step for me...

3 out of 5 stars Did P2 only

We did this as a link up from p1 of proctoscope, p2 of feast of fools. P2 is one really sick climb. It's all good up to the traverse, but, man that traverse is a killer. For this shorty, it was tough to get started, the crack under the roof is slopey and doesn't have a positive edge. I had to reach way around to get started; a very akward move. I figured I was going to wing off into outer space and never get back on the rock. Anyways, I reached out and started the traverse. I found that I could put my feet on the wall and just inch along. It worked pretty darn well. But, I am only 5' 2", my 6' + partner had to campus.

This climb was scary scary scary, I wasn't sure I could do it and I am glad that I forced myself to make the moves. Lots of fun! (It was hard to clean the gear on the traverse)

4 out of 5 stars Very nice!

Very nice route with good climbing on both pitches. I did think the hand traverse on pitch 2 was harder than anything on pitch 1.

4 out of 5 stars Lots of fun

It would be a nasty fall if the gear pulled before you reached the roof. Spectacular climbing.
