High Exposure
Sep 12, 2021 · Lead / Flash. w/ Sarah. Perfectly fun, easier than Madame G's! Led all, linked P1/2. P1/2 was wet and a bit scary bc of it; traverse R at big foot rail, then went up onto the slanted boulder with topout jugs to GT ledge. P2 move fun and not very scary, get feet R and figure out balance with hands to L. Top very pumpy, keep going to rest just below top; placed 3 black totems (other gear probably possible but was moving fast pumped).

Madame Grunnebaum's Wulst
Sep 11, 2021 · Lead / Onsight. w/ Sarah. Led P2/3. Sustained. Moves off deck on P1 felt really sketchy. P2 traverse to corner felt hardish too, wasn't happy with my pro for a while which made it scary. Belay took hand sizes in a horizontal. P3 roofs were pumpy and beta intensive, had to downclimb and retry a couple. Top out get high rail and traverse R. Rap bolts hidden around side of boulder (climber's R but go around back).

Asphodel
Sep 11, 2021 · Lead / Onsight. w/ Sarah. Super fun, plenty of jams! Crux was going up the finger crack to the block and then getting left; Sarah traversed lower than me. Horrible rope drag around the corner to the belay, put in a peenut before the traverse and should've slung it with a triple instead of double.

Minty
Sep 11, 2021 · Lead / Onsight. w/ Sarah. Led P1/2. Link 2/3 next time. P1 crux is a bit committing. P2 crux is after stepping onto the face at the hole in the flake, a bit steep. Fun!

The Boltway
Aug 14, 2021 · Lead / Onsight. w/ Ian, from Hermaphrodite Flake. Fun! Led P1/3. Boltway is genuinely well protected. Tunnel was wild and fun, not quite chimney moves for much of it. Layback up R to anchor, would be scary on lead. P4 runout traverse L and up would be harrowing lead, then laybacks all the way to the top. Went up/L (roped) to gully descent; found cairns but started down steep slab (scary) before hitting the gully to the R, not sure if correct.
