[Serenity Crack, Yosemite, 3 kb]Located above the Ahwahnee hotel. Bold start to the first pitch up tricky to use peg scars. Tricky section on 3rd pitch rated 5.11 until mid 70's.

Started up sons but had only started route at 2.30 and got stuck with rapping parties ad only having my tightest oerformance shoes is not the ticket for long routes stuffing feet in cracks. Will do it next time simul climbing and short fixing!
