Diamonds in the Rough
|721 page views|
A really fun variation on Big Time. Just after the start of the third pitch on Big Time, traverse right to the obvious left facing crack. Skip clipping the first couple bolts on the 3rd pitch of Big Time or you'll pick up some heinous rope drag.
Word of caution for night climbing: Bats live in the crack, and if you shine your headlamp in at oh, say 2am, you might scream like a little girl as they fly out 2 inches from your face.
After the crack ends, finish by topping out on the 4th (final) pitch on Big Time, definitely need a 60m rope.
Rap Big Time.
Gear to #2 Camalot. I placed 6 pieces and completely sewed it up.

I believe its "Diamond" in the Rough.
Guidebook has it at 5.10a. Harder?

Felt more like 5.9 compared to other City 10a climbs. Fun, but a little dirty and mossy.

Great climb, didn't use anything larger than a #1 camalot. Feels soft compared to most 10s around.
