MarciHW doing the beginning of Narcissism

Description 

Much harder to onsight than redpoint. Weave up the face past several cruxes. Just when you think it's over, the last desparate moves up a crack to the anchors really get the forearms burning. Of course, there are "secret" holds that make things easier. But if I told you where they were, then they wouldn't be a secret, would they?


Location 

In the Dihedrals area, on the left face of the dihedral. It's the next bolted line left from Ankles Away.


Protection 

7 bolts, anchors

Very fun climb with multiple cruxes and few rests. Had to rehearse this one a several times before the redpoint.

Second to last bolt before the anchors is almost rusted out, it's a spinner at this point. Makes the run-out up to the next bolt pretty sketchy. The bolt probably needs to be replaced.

Continuously awkward from the bottom to top.

Good mix of juggy power moves and crimpy slab moves. Fun throughout.
