East Face, Left Side Cracks
Sep 3, 2022 · absolutely awesome. #4 was optional but nice in at least 1 spot. def some lcc 5.8 the way we went up. good pro to be had. friction pitch was nbd, lots of pro.

Direct Petzoldt Ridge
Aug 15, 2022 · swapped leads with Micheal. Finished through upper exum solo/simul. went wrong way to start (up wet left facing dihedral with lots of bail anchors lol). had to backtrack as we *through* the window and had to cut back on route when we figured that out. first 2 pitches are mega classics, fine afterwards but not super memorable. Lower exum climbed better but this is more adventureous. Side note: I claim FCPFA of the route. First covid positive free ascent! I felt abnormally wiped @ the summit all of a sudden. After a long walk out tested positive for covid. Bleh.

CMC Route
Jul 25, 2022 · mostly simulclimbed with Jen. Much longer day than might be assumed from the mp description. double rope raps suck on this low angle terrain, would have been faster on a single tbh. Summit covered in butterflies. Saw avy while at notch to start back up drizzlepuss. cmc face was cruiser. Strongly suggest simulclimbing.....

Rasta Pocket
Jul 17, 2022 · Lead. took an intention test fall to work through some nerves. big pockets. fun climb. felt crux was bottom 2 bolts, undercling is easy but a bit of a blind commitment.
