Aug 30, 2021 · Lead / Onsight. First crux at the flake was hard for me. Just powered through it. Final crux at the roof was a matter of finding the undercling and then it was relatively chill.

Hand Jive
Aug 22, 2021 · Lead / Fell/Hung. took at the first face move above to get into the crack. move felt a bit too commiting and I was scared of my gear. and then I also took higher up when the crack narrows. not my best climb :) should do it again. need to trust gear/place better gear.
