Whoa. This photo taken from the ground I imagine? Nice work.

Yes, from the ground. I did place one directional 5ft off the deck that you can't see in the pic.

Easy 5.9 climbing to the ledge I'm on but a balancey traverse from the right to get there, a little spooky 30ft up with nothing to help.

There was some micro nut pro on the right hand side of the ledge behind a hollow block but I decided it wasn't worth the trouble, although on lead I was considering some mental pro there.

Yeah wow. Hey when was 5.9 downgraded to "easy"??? I wasn't told. LOL.

BTW Nick, surprised you're posting on MP today, 60 and sunny. Some of us have desk/inside jobs but I expect more from you...

Right on!

You gotta pull up off the ledge too (feet) to get to the gear placements at the roof don't ya? Even more excitment?

At the ledge before the crux, HEFTY run out. Actual climbing is in the watermarks on the right.
