Comments: I don't quite get the bolt on the third pitch. It's the only place I could find to put pro in (a few feet above or below it, don't remember). After that I looked around and took my time and couldn't find much. I don't know why someone didn't put that bolt 15-20 feet higher where it is really run out if they felt it needed one.

Comments: Got halfway up and couldn't figure out where to go. You know you are in trouble when you ask your belayer for directions.

Comments: Did the 5.9 finish. Well my partner led it which meant I had to lead The Final Link. The first few moves to reach the first bolt are scary. I was willing to sell my first born to reach the second and I swear the bolts are so far apart that you have to clip the third before you are safe from plummeting off the edge of the slab. Slab is best left for cooler weather.

Comments: First pitch is great, last two forgettable. Do the 5.7 if you are going to hike up to this wall.

Comments: Even though I had beta in my pocket and read it a dozen times I accidentally ran the last two pitches together. I forgot to step down and traverse instead stepping up and traversing. That traverse is pretty thin and harder than 5.6 but the worst is the rope drage near the top when you least want it. I wouldn't recomend it unless you didn't get enough excitement to that point.
