4 out of 5 stars Bird is the Word

Wheeew that OW section(s) gave me the bird. The topo said 5.9 fist crack on the first pitch, yeah if by fist crack you mean 4.5 Camalot size. Cool location on the top out for sure. Anyone else think this rock was pretty sugary?

3 out of 5 stars Penguin Land

Did the hard pitch, 5.10c 1st pitch, before realizing that the kids (Megan and Jonathan) would not be able to 2nd it. Pretty stiff for 5.10c I thought. Chewed up my left arm in that small off width section as well. I did not have the gear to feel all warm and fuzzy about this pitch. You need several 4's and 3's to protect this well. Decent climb though. The middle chimney is a disaster for noobs though which was the route I thought I could take them up.
