Just did a new climb in the meadows and wanted to share. It's a beautiful 50 foot overhanging green alien crack up on the power wall, which you might have passed on the decent from Tenaya peak. It felt like the most difficult crack I've climbed and one of the best.

I always thought that one looked rad. Did you start off the snow?

Peter, Schneider did the one to the right, I did the one just left, and Croft did the next one over. I think this is new - and hard, I'm sure!

wow - looks like a seam down low. Got to be hard on a wall that steep.

Hard to imagine Peter C. did not give it a go. If he didn't climb it, it must be *really* hard.

I never climbed it......and neither did anyone before Charlie is my bet.

Didn't start off the snow, there's a gap in between the snow and the wall. That bank is still there, that last pic was taken 2 days ago. Croft told me he did try it but never did it, must have been too far of a walk for him...

Maysho ever try Panic in Detroit?!

No clue on the grade really, felt harder than Love Supreme and Whippersnapper, so 13b/c? Until Beth onsights it and says 12- ring locks.
