5 out of 5 stars Nike Direct

Climbed "Great Expectation" and then rapped down and over to set a TR on "Nike Direct" with the objective of working on friction technique. Perfect height for 60m rope for this drill. After running laps on TR, pulled the rope and lead it.

Staying left under the first bolt is the easier path. The crack above is super fun!! Make sure that you have a full 60m rope, or you won't make it to the belay bolts after the crack runs out.

Followed rob up what we thought was the nike route. Thinness at first bolt, then cruiser up from there. Nice crack all the way up or climb the face, either way is 5.6/7
