Chuck above the deceptive P4 10b. Doesn't this look sooo easy? But it's sooo hard. Very insecure. Small but good gear. Aliens, etc.
The main thing I remember about our ascent in 1975 was the 4th pitch which was much harder than it was supposed to be. EBs, painters pants, 60/40. Not sure how it was protected in those days with no cams. There may have been some more pins.

Athlete's Feat - Still hard 40 years after the FFA. Englishman's Home 11c is the series of shallow, right-facing corners right of Athletee's Feat. Country Club Crack 11c is the obvious, left-angling series of cracks.

Looks like a good line. Can you do it in fewer pitches?

Yes, if you dispense with the rope and therefore, the rope drag.

1 and 2 link pretty easily. It's counter-intuitive, but clip the anchor with a short runner as you go by. It doesn't really add to the drag, but positions the rope well for the second pitch.
