South Face
Jun 22, 2021 · Lead. The most beautiful exposure I’ve yet to experience... but not sure if I’d repeat a 25mi investment for a few hours of climbing. Easily goes in 3hrs, w no move stiffer than 5.7, maybe 5.7+. 2x black totem, 1x totems blue-orange, 1x rack dragons blue-blue. Could easily get by w/ less gear, this allowed for more linking + simuling.

South Face
Jun 5, 2021 · Lead. Lucky day, zero traffic, crazy to be the only ones on it on a saturday... 33min on Kor, reasonably happy w/ that, all other pitches went smoothly, can prob shave an hr off next time... Partner insisted on walkoff, was nice to stand on top but def a one-time thing, otherwise rap from 10, for sure.
