1st 3 pitches. E3/4, E4, E2. Techy crux on pitch 1 took 2 tries. Crux on pitch 2 feels committing and bold.

Classic Yosemite sandbag. An incredible routefinding masterpiece through the the low angle slabs of middle cathedral. I led both cruxes after Mike placed the gear. Managed the get down with about two minutes of daylight left, nearly an epic. The lower crux is more like 11c and the rest of the route doesn't let up much. Hard on the toes and the ego. Every pitch is excellent. Absolute classic.

Got to the top of the 5th pitch and the belay was a single part pulled rivet. I tried to lead on but about 12ft short of a crack that would eat gear the holds dried up and the climbing started to get desperate. Not wishing to kill us I managed to reverse down for a pow wow. Abbing off seamed to be the best choice but the rivet was pant's! We set the ropes up and I went first. As I started Andy unclipped from the belay, I asked him what he was doing and he said if it ripped he did not want to go with me! We laughed about it at the bottom and I told him I would have hated being up there on small holds with no belay knowing my partner was dead, Good job we were a couple of lightweights!

Just climbed the first 5 pitches, which is the usual way to take in the best bits. First-pitch crux is a nasty 25 - 30ft up with one bolt for protection - and they used a duff batch of bolts on this route. Scary.
