Made a complete fist of it, spent so much time getting unnecessary extra gear in the crux that I was pumped, as well as filling the best handholds with gear. So rested and ended up semi-aiding it. :-(

Middle section felt quite thrutchy for 4b, though it was the first climb of the day.

Nice route. Surprisingly awkward negotiating the overhang into the crack but good fist jams await.

Pike 16/Jul/13 2nd

Good solid hands, great crux move. Easier if your lead climber doesn't put a bloody hex in the way though.
