3 out of 5 stars War on Rugs

First tried to do this route with a friend and it was raining. Both of us had sent 12a's before but we couldn't get off the deck. Absolutely no friction!

Came back a few months later (when it was dry) and sent it first go. I probably made the start harder than it was. Saw someone do it after me and he made it look better. Stay left after you get on the headwall.

3 out of 5 stars One I came back to

I hadn't been on War in several years and remembered always hating it...I guess that's because I wasn't a very good climber back then!! It is a good route and makes you think.

4 out of 5 stars 5.10d?

I guess so. At the upper end of that grade though. I wouldn't be exaggerating when I say I've gotten on easier 11's.

5 out of 5 stars finally feels 10d (but a BIG FAT 10d)

Bartoni and i worked it going direct to bad pinches in the cave, to set up for the jug right-hand sidepull on the cave's left edge. That sucked and felt 11a. This time, DP's beta shuffled the hands till left-hand is in the curved-edge sloper. Right-hand up to bad sloper, bump to immediately set the sidepull.
