Flash Flash ascent by: IsayAutumn on 2010-07-31 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars Lived up to its name

I got it clean, but I was not proud of my climbing. The first half went fairly smoothly, but I was worked when I got into the chimney. Dehydration cramped me up, and I barely hung on in a grovel fest to the top. I was so focused on getting to the anchors, that my gear was not top notch. Ugly, but it's out of the way.

5 out of 5 stars Agny till Dawn

Really nice climb. Add a 20 ft in a 5.11 traverse, and you have the 14th pitch of Atlantis (the Black). Yes I loved both routes

4 out of 5 stars Not Agony per se

There isn't a punctuated crux on this one...it just keep going. The first half is a blast. The second half is also fun, depending on fatigue level.

5 out of 5 stars Aptly Named

I cleaned Mark Nord's lead. 1 long pitch to the top. What a great route! I'm a good ways from leading anything like that.
