Comments: Conrad Anker always espouses to keep your feet and hands well moisturized with salve or cream at altitude. He said he picked it up from Nepalese Sherpas and hasn't failed him yet.

Comments: Yeah def felt most sketched clipping the chains, first few moves were polished feet but low enough that you could jump down and not mess yourself up.

Wish I would have spent a longer rest before the second 1/2.

Comments: Not to be a dick Floyd but that first pitch is no where CLOSE to 5.10, sounds like you have to work on your technique a bit. I onsight lead solo'd it and I can only do a handful of 5.10 leads and two 5.11's at my peak.

Comments: I wouldn't say this is a sandbagged .11a at all. There is basically 3 moves in the 11 range...I'd call them maybe closer to 11c/ V3 but you have that amazing rest and a bolt basically making it a top roped move. Getting from the 2nd to 3rd almost was harder with crap feet.

Sweet sand stone twist to slab climbing

Comments: Stuck me a #8 BD nut in the The Leaning Tower. If anyone grabs it it'd be great to get it back (I'd pay for shipping). Thanks :D
