Rhoads on lead.


Good hard route. Distinct crux. Ignore the guidebook suggestion that the upper left corner is off. Same grade and much more pleasant with it on.


Middle of Poison Ivy Wall, face left of Ramses II with obvious undercling.


TR, or some cams in the undercling, then run it out.

This went down classic DL style; I got on it and flailed all over, said "5.11b my ass!" came down, Vinny got on it flailed all over but eventually grovelled up it and said "5.11b my ass!". Then, we both sent the next go and agreed 5.11b sounded about right.

LOL, yeah we've all been there. I've said that about 5.8's at the Lake.

Led it today, a directional down low, cams in the undercling and then run out to a small cam or ball nut right near the top. Definitely R/X, although the crux is protected well.
