Sweet warm-up. Sandbagged 5.8

Felt pretty hard for a 5.8, especially a trad lead. Maybe I'm just bad at crack climbing...Climbed it again on TR, which was pretty fun doing some big laybacks.

I got really sweaty climbing this in August and the jams got slick real quick. Took a big whip from about midway up the route landing just inches off the deck. Exciting, challenging, and memorable(for me) climb.

Great "8" crack. Easy to protect with lots of options outside of the crack if you want to climb it that way - only wish it was longer. Route has bolted anchors.
