Trad; Even Steven or maybe Werewolves in London, or maybe the last 10a pitch of Angel's Crest.
Sport: Jeff and the Giant Reach.
Recommend me your favorites.
On the other hand, High Mountain Woody, when I climbed it last year, was the first .9 I'd been on in a while and was like, this is AMAZING!
As far as sport goes, I haven't really climbed enough to have an opinion on it, but the second pitch of Dancing in the Light had some really cool features, and it ain't trad.
Yeah, the Sword is hard to beat for position, great climbing but not super varied...
and i'd have to say that i agree with nate on that pitch, quite excellent!
but, the 2nd pitch of teetering and the 4th are quite the ride..
That a new one.browniephoto wrote:technically dancing in the light is trad since it was bolted on lead...
Face: Java Jive (too runout to be considered sport)
Sport: Permanent Waves (up to the second last bolt, before crux move and the chipped hold)
Sport: No Name Road
I don't climb enough sport to have an opinion...
It definitely has it's moments..... The guidebook says that the bolts get closer together as it gets steeper, which they do compared to the lower pitches, but they still aren't close by any means.jonny2vests wrote:Is Dancing in the Light as terrifying as it looks in that photo recently posted
Perhaps my slab headspace has just gotten better since the start of the year, but I found myself getting way more of a rush on White Lightning - speaking of which, the second proper pitch of that is also really cool as far as slab goes.
So how hard is it Kris if you only do the tree climb to here? I didn't know it was chipped.Sport: Permanent Waves (up to the second last bolt, before crux move and the chipped hold)
I used to feel the same way as you about last pitch of Sunblessed...until I tried stemming the first section, instead of jamming/groveling the wide crack. Give that a try next time. (It might not make it a favorite, but it might move up slightly in your rankings.)

My recollection is about 12a or b. It's been a few years since I've been on it.relic wrote:So how hard is it Kris if you only do the tree climb to here? I didn't know it was chipped.
