Nov 7, 2020 · Lead / Pinkpoint. Surprisingly hella fun . Bolted boulder problem . Went in two minus figuring out first move . Almost four stars but perpetually wet on starting sequence even on the most dry fall day .

Social Distance
Nov 7, 2020 · Lead / Onsight. OS. Calcium build up makes limestone surface bumpy and nodule like . In my exp. these tend to pop off easily . Gear will likely not hold. Would not recommended to any novice climbers or in experienced trad leaders. rock is shit for most of route. Giant loose blocks at top so don’t pull one off . Despite all that it was spicy and really fun to climb . Type 2 fun .
