Pat on climber's corner

Description 

This corner is often wet, which is nice 'cause then you have an excuse not to lead it.... However, when it drys out, it is a great climb to test yourself on....I've climbed harder grades, but this is one of the most strenuous leads I've done.... Be ready to sweat....

Starts out as a nice, hand crack leading up to a low roof the hand crack turns to off-width and the fun starts.... Climb out of the roof with awkward positioning and slippery feet till the crack turns to hands again.... A stance will let you catch your breath.... There seems to be options at the top, but I follow a thin finger crack and a few face moves to the top....

Location 

To the left of Obscene Phone Call (5.8), there is an intimidating corner with a roof about 10 feet off the ground, this is Climber's Corner....

Protection 

A regular rack could do it, but I used a #5 Camalot in the offwidth, roof crack (I just love to play with big cams, I guess), and it was helpful....

Belay or TR from trees....

Finally lead this one clean the other day. Never top roped it. Went for the lead. Strenuous and exciting with a great knee bar rest. Definitely on the top of the list now.

Favorite 10 in the park! Getting that kneebar is phenomenal. Extremely strenuous if you miss it.
