Climbs the dihedral left of the Cres-sent roof. Tough crux off the deck and a slab crux up high. Stick-clipping is cheating IMO. The FA was a 50th birthday present to myself.

Clipped them all from the ground Jbak just so you wouldn't DQ my send. Isn't that bad when you have worked it as many times as I did. It is safer to clip the third bolt when you get higher in the dihedral rather than at your first opportunity. You will not hit the ground with an attentive belayer but if you popped off as you were trying to clip from lower you would come close. Aug 28, 2008
On this agian yesterday for the second time in two weeks and that first move is still stupid hard. Took me a dozen tries and a tantrum to get a sequence I hope will work. Not like a lot of 12s where once you get the move dialed it is just a matter of not pumping out. The single move is so hard for me that it is probably less than 50/50 I will stick it. Aug 21, 2008
Super hard bouldery crux just off the deck. I stick clipped the 2nd bolt when I tried it. I barely got to the clipping hold and was glad I stick clipped it. After that it eases up. Jul 18, 2006
