DescriptionThis route has more history than Cher and Meatloaf!
No, not really; but it sure has given me a couple stories to tell.
The first day I went to do this it was an early morning and I was alone. I started from the ground, rope soloing. The wind was HOWLING. I am not good on measuring wind speed, but surely it was over 300 miles an hour. Maybe more.
Up through the 5.8 section of good handcrack and jugs to the obvious break, and the blank headwall. I placed a bolt, and lightened the load. I tried to free to the next break and took a number of wingers. Finally, I figured out the sequence, using a key crimp and nailed the crux. I climbed above it a little bit and placed a hook, then pulled up my drill. After another bolt, I pulled up rope to clip in. And then...
POP GOES THE WEASEL! with all my slack out to clip and my drill over my shoulder I took the big ride.
I screamed like a little girl.
No, literally, it was full falsetto, and a little nasaly.
The key crimp?
LocationStart on the low angle, winding crack, 30 feet left of "Last Chance" then pull onto blank face, and then to steep "crack" at the top. Belay/Rap at a tree
