bit of a fight! rope jammed in the top of the crack, made topping out unneccessarily "fun"

date is a guess. i remember climbing up and down a few times and thinking it seemed impossible until i took out the cam that was blocking the place my fist needed to be. after that it was still quite tough but eminently possible
