Close up view of "School Daze" showing how we pitched it out.  You can see P1, P2 and part of P3 here.  P1 was long, very runout (2 pieces in 35 meters!), and the rope got stuck/sucked into the crack where it turns abruptly left.  I couldn't make it to the roof due to horrible drag.  I had 4 pieces in the entire length, about 55 meters of rope, and only 2 of those would've held a fall I think.<br>

P2 wasn't much better, with my partner having to run it out 50 more feet before being able to place gear.  P3 was a nice hand crack for 20' before the "bathtub" features.  They are unprotectable, but super easy to climb.

LOL. I really wish I had looked at this photo and read the description before I led the first pitch of this climb.

I also tried to make it all the way to the large roof (as shown in the guidebook), and got my rope stuck against a cam in the exact same place as J.Fox describes. Fortunately I was at a good spot to build an anchor when it got stuck, because Ii had to rappel to get it unstuck. Jun 6, 2016
