Tornado on your Birthday
|149 page views|
P2: Pull the roof from the first pitch belay of "Cloudy Day." Instead of stepping right, continue straight up on edges and horizontals with small gear to a small roof/overlap. Protect in a horizontal below the roof, move left, and fire up on good holds to lower-angled terrain. Trend up and right past the small, dead tree to the top.
Descent: Same as for "Cloudy Day."
Note: Not sure if this is a true FA. Please correct if not. When we climbed it, there was no chalk, no obvious gardening, no fixed gear, and tons of lichen.
Variation to the second pitch of "Cloudy Day." Description starts from the P1 belay of "Cloudy Day."
Note: "Flight of the Swallows" and "Tornado on your Birthday" make for great cragging in the sky. Climb "Cloudy Day" and rap back down one pitch to the ledge to fire off the second pitches of "Swallows" and "Tornado".
Small gear needed for face above belay.
