Finally getting some sun.


Just so there's no confusion, I didn't lead this pitch. My partners managed to get the rope up it, with falls and hangs, and I had the distinct pleasure of a toprope.

This is a great pitch on the NW side of Blair III, about 50' left of Intimidation - 5.9. A shallow hand-sized crack quickly dwindles to fingers, crappy fingers and crimps (probably the crux) past a bolt. This gets you to a horizontal crack (big hand-sized cams) on which you hand-traverse left to another steep seam. Follow this past two bolts and finger sized gear. There's hard climbing throughout this sustained pitch with distinctly harder sections at the 1st and 2nd bolts.


Bring a standard rack up to #3 Camalot with doubles of the thin cams (Aliens). Three bolts and a mangled fixed wire round out the protection. The first two bolts are difficult and dicey to clip.
