Description:

Climb the dihedral just right of Harvard, then go right to the arete, then up through the overhangs to the top. Very hard and deceiving moves for the grade.

4 out of 5 stars Upper part was strenuous today

I sailed through the lower part. Felt like the part after the knife edge was more strenuous than usual.

3 out of 5 stars tough start

completed the 5.9 start, but was put off by a soaked and flowing watery knife-edge. I bailed out moving left at the ledge and up through the cavern. interesting still.

3 out of 5 stars Seemed easier on lead

Sometimes that's the way things go. Well protected down low, unprotected move onto the knife edge.

Did the direct variation

3 out of 5 stars A tough little 7

Ah, I finally figured out the "secret" to the early moves. Doesn't make them easier, just makes them repeatable.
