Andy on the FA

Description 

A nice little crack that heads left to some scary blocks which may or may not be loose. Pull on them carefully but don't place protection on them. A fun little romp!

First lead on-site by Andy McMurray with two pieces of protection, neither of which was small enough for the crack or safe enough to hold a fall (hence the name).

Location 

To the right of Grandma Bubbles - kind of the arete on the main face but follows a thin crack system

Protection 

The lower crack will take C3s or nuts. Higher up you can plug a #1 Camalot. Walk off or rap from the anchors on PB or GB.

Slung the first "horn", popped a #1 higher up in a horizontal crack towards the final moves. :) Don't know what the hell I was thinking.

I think it was my positive comments from my belay post that got you up the rock. Ha!

This route is cleaning up well and should be a safe lead by next week...
