My partner Joey made this TR of his first wall experience. We had a good time, climbed the route clean over a casual 4 days. Enjoy.

Love this comment: "The hike down doesn't count cause it was harder than the climb."

So True

Congratulations on your ascent. TFPU

Got really interesting when my double A5 started to tear away at the seams.

That's the second A5 (TNF generation) ledge I have had fail on me up on El Cap so far....
