4 out of 5 stars Nice committment!

Love the commitment necessary for the line, but it really is a one move wonder. I protected the move with a big hex, but it wouldn't have kept me off the deck. I fully planned to back off and take the easy traverse, so when I walked up the layback and hit the lip and stepped up and over, I was psyched. I did not even think I had my head game together for the Water Streak, thinking about being a chicken. The upper section is super easy, like a 4 or 5. Also, I just sat in the cave/crack and brought my second up with no anchor which was perfect.

I found out at the crux why they call this "Buns Up" - or one possible reason, anyway. I laybacked the overhanging edge instead of arm-barring etc. offwidth-style, and slipped in the process of topping the corner. The rope caught me behind the right leg and flipped me upside down. I whacked the meaty part of the left side of my back on the ground and my helmeted head hit, too. So, I went "Buns Up" for reals. If it hadn't been for the helmet, I doubt I would have felt much like climbing for the rest of the weekend. Instead, I led the 3rd pitch around the corner of Great Expectations and then Berkly led what may become "Pip" a fourth-pitch extension of GE with a fun 5.7 handcrack in the middle of it.
