Abbed to place the side runner well and gave it a brush - ridiculously scrittly. Really cool. Hard moves are low but the final slap feels well bold.

Psyched. This is my first E5 on sight. Was technically easy just potential for a bad fall.

As a trad climb this time: still pretty steady with bomber runners in the crack. Potential for a nasty swing tempered by a pad leaning against the wall.

Nice big snow platform!

Snowball, decent enough platform so why not. Font 5+? Hard to believe this is ever E5 in any condition, but a fun bit of climbing. Have to put my money where my mouth is and come solo it when the snow's gone.

Still pretty high-ball even with a big snow platform, luckily pretty easy.
