In the flare on P1
The grunt P1 of this otherwise stellar route is thrashy "down payment" you have to do to earn the sweetness that is above. When I did this pitch in '91 it was coated with Silverfish, which made the thing really slippery and sorta creepy. Apr 1, 2015

I had a complete pumpfest on this pitch in 1978 or so as my first 5.9 lead...returned years later and it really is much, much easier if you stay on the outside and stem as much as possible. No trouble protecting it this way either. If you stay inside for security it is definitely a thrash. Basically if you are using any sort of chimney move you are doing it wrong, or at least making it harder on yourself. Mar 29, 2017
