Pitch 2 beautiful granite splitter  
Ah the greasy but groovy thin hand pitch.
Gotta think this has only gotten greasier over the years. Apr 6, 2009
First time I did this, full sun, hexes and green chouinards, felt like 5.11 (not that many hard cracks either)
2nd time, it felt like a cruise.
3rd time it seemed pretty stiff considering what I'd remembered.

Nothing like sandbagging oneself.

Greg, aren't there thin hands in the crux, what, 15 feet up or so?
Or do you get finger locks ? Sep 7, 2009

I found an old photo of Phil Broscovak on FR, when we climbed it back in '78....It probably wasn't as greasy then....
