4 out of 5 stars Orange Peel

Sent this after a day on the backside and the tiny feet of Mexican Radio. I think that greatly helped my perspective for this route as the feet felt pretty good and with small hands I could get my fingers into the crack. Mostly left hand in the crack with feet smearing on the face or up against the crack. Used many small cams and nuts. Runout to the top I wasn't quite expecting but didn't really have any other options than to go up or give up. The climbing felt easier than I expected but there were some stances were gear was sparse and I didn't want to fiddle with nuts.

5 out of 5 stars excellent climb

I was kinda nervous about this one but did fine. I tended to climb it more as a face climb though. I took a bunch of small cams and used them all. One of the best climbs at Erock IMO. Felt a little harder than 10a to me - more like 10c or d.

5 out of 5 stars first go success

I led it on the first go but I had some beta help along the way. Be sure to set a directional anchor while standing on the block.
