Onsight Onsight ascent by: brinosaur on 2011-10-22 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars Crap down low, good up top

Climbing through broken, chossy garbage for the first 20 feet, followed by some very nice movement to the top. Soft for the grade (11a/b) and in need of some good trundling.

* 10/22/2011: A hold broke near the top of the crux through the thin crack about 60 feet up -- what was once a good crimp pulled off a softball sized chunk revealing an scooped edge, not really changing the grade at all. Use caution even on non-suspect holds.

4 out of 5 stars Wow.

Took two big falls at the crux trying to work it out. Not bad once I knew where to go.

4 out of 5 stars My first 5.11c flash

I almost chickened out at the crux, but my belayer (James) egged me on. Thanks James!
