Head up the steepest section of rock. Pretty burly climbing, with slopey moves low, followed by some hard pulls, and then hanging in on diminishing crimps. Feels longer than it is.

Since it went up in winter (sun all AM) and the top was wet. Above this is a no hands and then some 5.10 climbing, so it could go to the top but it wouldn't add much.

Birthday Challenge failure, where this was to be the first of five FAs in a day.

Umm, yeah.

Bolts and the anchor, which is two fixed draws.
