Description

Sita (aka Seetha) fires up a 5.9 slab to the Cross Cut P2 finish. The direct start makes more sense as an independent line. The rock is excellent throughout. While Sita has been extensively brushed, some lichen remains, so carrying a brush is a good idea for this initial period. Several brushes were stashed in orange pail at the base of the crag. The anchor is shared with the route to the left (Ram). The slab and the crack above need 3 to 4 cams for protection. Sita is known to the Hindu for her dedication, self-sacrifice, and courage.

Location

Ram is the right-most route on MCD.

Protection

Nine draws, 3 to 4 cams covering 0.5 to 2 inches, and something for the double bolt anchor at the top. I always climb with a 70 meter rope, but my arm to arm reeling off of rope on the ground indicates that a 60 meter should drop you to the ground.

I thought it was a lot less painful to tape the back of the hands for the crux cracks on the final bit before the anchor. The cracks are not super bad, but the jams get torqued quite a bit in standing up. Oct 10, 2013
