I climbed maybe 20' to the right, straight up the thin black streak and directly below the next pitch dihedral...felt 5.6+ to me.

I'm quite sure the line you took is the proper one then. I remember getting to the the start of the sloping ledge at the end of this pitch and having to traverse right on the thinnest climbing of the pitch. Felt like 8+ friction.

Ugh.... I still get queasy thinking about that traverse you did 200' out. One cool customer is Mr. Seaver. That was surely one of our better days in the hills, eh?

I looked at the way you went, actually my partner followed that way. It was a crap shoot, haha. Luckily the rock was sound and relatively easy, eh!
Ithaca's a cool continuous line, I thought!
