EC, is Silver Lining, The Fin, a 5.9 a route to be done by modern 5.11+ climbers? Or would it be a sack-shriveling experience for a modest 5.9 leader?
For reference, I thought I was a 'solid' 5.9 climber when I hopped on Piece de Resistance on Moro Rock in Sequioa/Kings years ago. I led the first 3 pitches, and the 5.9 stuff on that scared the bujesus out of me with mind-hurtful runouts at the limit of my climbing ability on crumbling chicken heads. I still have some specific moments burned into my brain. We bailed because the topo said the next pitch was the scary one. It would be tough to do The Fin approach and get part way up and bail in similar circumstances. Any guidance?
