Comments: The crack itself was fun and varied, if a bit dirty. Still quite sandy coming out of the crack. Since the anchor is above and right of the climb, lowering off and top-roping can really wear your rope. I watched a cloud of sand go up into the air as I lowered from the friction of my rope going over the edge... My partner and I decided the best way to go about this for minimal rope wear would have been for me to top-belay her up, and for both of us to rap down.

Comments: Definitely glad I stick-clipped the first bolt. The move off the ground is fine, but the move to the first lip is very reachy for a shorter climber. Moving up past the second bolt is reachy as well. The beginning felt more like 10d at my height (5'5"). Comfortable climbing once you're past the 2nd bolt.

Comments: The corner with the 5.6s was a great place to brush up on gear anchors at the top of some super short and easy trad pitches. I also particularly enjoyed Valentine's Day! However, we seem to have left this area one cam short, so if anyone picked up a #2 BD cam with purple and blue tape this week, a six pack could be yours if you help it find it's way back to me!
