Pitch 4 was the crux. Stem if you can stomach it, or just ow it. Working hard for every move.  The Surprise traverse  Braille book: top of pitch 5. Trusting that floating tree belay with obviously exposed root structure. At least it's alive.  Braille book: Fun exposed pitch 5. First time I really had to not look down when leading.  The Surprise: pitch 2 traverse.
