I remember that move well... Finally got it on the fourth try. Reachy, balancy, and pretty desperate.

The climber has just completed the "five crimps to a wide-ass stem on slopers to a low reach for the blind flake" 5.11a move that starts the second pitch of The Vampire. Indeed, the exposure here is horrific, but the pro is perfecto...bolts right at your face. She is making the tall reach to the massive jug that starts "The Bologna Slicer" pitch, which has to be one of the finest pitches at 5.9 anywhere.Bring stacks of 3/4" to 1 1/2" cams for this. The lip is sharp...most excellent...and the feet are solid...lots of clean edges. Neither Tahquitz nor Suicide experienced glaciation, and that is why the edging is so positive.

Nice shot.....

When you do that move, the desperate part is behind you. You have really good holds, but don't pull the slicer off....
