4 out of 5 stars Too sustained for me!

Hang dogged and humped my way up the two cruxes, went left of the open book b/c I couldn't figure out how to get into it. Need to come back and do this one in better style.

4 out of 5 stars lead: check.

Fairly easy and nice rests up until the 1st crux (the dark vertical crack and small roof) sustained and slightly overhanging up until the 2nd crux. I found the thank god hold out right in the open book/2nd crux this time.

p1/Sentinel chimney is a bit weird and slightly scary since it is sort of easy but doesn't protect as well. Really unpleasant if it's wet.

4 out of 5 stars worth the crappy first pitch

First pitch was WET and offers weird protection and slopey holds, a little scary. Second pitch (ie: Air Show) was great. I was following to inspect for a later lead effort and was pleased to note that rest stances do exist and there are many positive incut holds and good gear. It's not bad up until the first crux (gear beta: #3 C4) and from there through the 2nd crux it's fairly in your face. First crux wasn't too difficult and then it's fairly overhung until the "open book" second crux, which was definitely tricky, esp since it was wet. Difficult too due to the pump you get coming up to it but there's at least a couple jugs to rest at a little and you could hang if needed. Great gear just before and after each crux move so I think I'll take a shot next time I'm out. Eases off considerably after the open book.
