Chris on the E-ticket.... rippin, naturally.

Description 

Start as for Whip Tide. Climb the initial boulder problem and head up the big dihedral. Where Whip Tide heads right, E-Ticket goes left, skirting the big roof. The climb eventually links up with the topout of Aquarius. All in all, E-Ticket offers about twelve feet of independent climbing.

E-Ticket is not climbed as often as it deserves, since most people who climb the corner tend to head for the Whip Tide finish. E-Ticket is a worthwhile jaunt for climbers who have sent Whip Tide and are looking for another quick tick, or for climbers who would like experience with Aquarius's dreaded topout.

This route is SOOOOO hard for me... i do fine till i hit the jugs on the roof then i pump out instantly! i flashed it's neighbor, whiptide (5.12b/c) but e-ticket seems so much harder... i guess i need to work on my power endurance... anyone else get shut down on this thing?

Yeah man gotta work the steeps jug-durance. Beta-sussing would also undoubtedly mitigate the difficulties.

Way to go, Lee! Congrats.
Slightly off topic - do you know if Luau is dry?
