Jason and I climbed it on Saturday. We were hoping for better style (redpoint), but instead we each needed (wimped out) to take some hangs. I knew I wasn't having a good day after hacking up loogies from my ex-cold trying to keep up with Jason on the approach, shitting a lovely oatmeal consistency, and taking a hang on the friggin' first pitch, the easiest pitch of the route (ok, so it was wet). Actually I felt pretty darn winded and almost light-headed by the top of the 1st pitch, no doubt thanks to the outs earlier in the morning. I regained some energy once I put some food and water in me, but still neither of us were having good days. I guess that's what happens when you get out every weekend climbing <=5.9 in the alpine and then surprise yourself with 5.10.

Most of my pictures suck (it's a hard route to photograph with just 2 people -- I have several overexposed foreshortened buttshots that really blow turdmonkeys), but here are the best:

Your links are broken. I'll look more into fixing them tomorrow when I have a faster connection. But the last three pics of me turned out great (I found them in Picasa) -- I ave surprisingly few good photos of me climbing, as I'm usually the one taking the pics.

Could you email the originals to me?

Thanks,
Gary
