very nice tradder w/bolts, not sure where the 10a moves were but not gonna down-grade it either . . . maybe my first .10 trad? cool route, cool wall. This was my first climb of the day, having left OKC at 5:0early am to beat the heat, and I had been on Crown of Thorns twice the previous saturday (and no other routes) - so I let Chris bag that onsight and started on this one. Felt good to just hop on a trad onsight even at .10a, as I'm trying to start pushing myself harder with less concern for grades and just get on stuff for the experience. these 10's turned out to be pretty easy, either because we've improved or they're soft or both, but we worked our way left across the wall as far as Spooky Windmill (.11a) which dished up some humble pie for me at the very first, then I got to where I could at least imagine pulling it off, then Chris hangdogged it 'til he worked out a realistic sequence and worked through the moves. I then had another shot and felt about to get it when the rain got too heavy and the sloper-bar was soaked. Still needed better footwork anyway. Amazingly, though, I'm tempted to lead it next time as the climbing up to the bolted crux is far less than .11, maybe more like .9. It's a cool wall for that. Pleasant climbing up to a bulgy crux band and then backs off toward the anchors.
