Manana
Jun 9, 2019 · Lead / Fell/Hung. Fell at the first purple portion while in a lieback, then again reaching for a thin hand jam - foot split. Popped a blindly placed 0.4. Hung later on pumped at the fingers. Incredible climb!

Jun 8, 2019 · 10 pitches. Lead / Onsight. Lead 1,3,5,7,8. Felt great. Hiked up north dome gully starting at 5:00 am, at the base of the climb at 9:00. Actually made it to the direct start by using “alt a” ndg trail around 8:00 am. Decided to go with standard to avoid the extra hours in the sun.

May 5, 2019 · Lead / Fell/Hung. Need to place gear less frequently and make sure it’s good. Crack takes excellent gear but it is hard to read.

Apr 21, 2019 · Lead / Redpoint. Like my fifth time on route now. Beautiful day climbing with James Bultitude. Thought I should be floating it by now but it’s still a hard climb :)

Lunatic Fringe
Apr 20, 2019 · Lead / Fell/Hung. Slipped working my jams and establishing balance after the first crux. Hung while I considered my lack of 0.5s prior to lieback. With better gear beta might be a send but would require judicious use of rests still. Amazing amazing climb.
