The polished 5.7 section down low was tougher than I thought. But it protects very well.

Very stout big hands. The main show protects well with a couple #5s and several #4s. If you can't send it clean, you can yard on the big cams, as I did.

Kind of a sandbag 5.8, but what do I know.

Bomber bolts at the belay. Makes for a fun toprope.

I'll be back, Little John!

Maybe a sandbag, but then again it was my first granite crack in 7 years. Fixed lines were in the way a bit too. Smooth for sure, but solid. Beware of the bird nesting in the crack next to the rap, (s)he'll go after you!
