My hardest all trad onsight and probably the most memorable climb of the trip. Tried the Alex "no big deal" Honnnold approach but ended up with parkinsons after about 5 meters. As the crack became vertical and the feet disappeared i was feeling out of my depth. Kept it together until my foot slipped and i cried out like a beaten dog hahaha. Used a double gaston with every muscle in my body to keep me from whipping onto the gear. Managed to drag myself through the wet/slimey upper section of the route more out of fear of testing my gear than being a bad ass. Laughed uncontrollable once i topped out and realised what a pussy i am. The climbing is solid and the gear is bomber.

A classic in my eyes. Probably because it was my first alpine route. The approach would be enough for a non-climber. Took hours to find the route so i'd suggest to others to distinguish it from afar before looking up at acres of rock from below where the description means shit. look for slings at the end of the first pitch. Climbed off route from the start and scared the b-jesus out of myself. Broke a hand hold and saw my life flash before my eyes and regretting not placing gear for 5 meters. seriously considered life, got it together and went on a hectic journey upward. Definitely did a variant but got there in the end. Last pitch is the hardest (not according to description) and the topo gives you shit all. A must do for anyone getting into trad climbing. So memorable.

The approach to the cliff is exposing enough let alone soloing up a fixed line to a belay.

Had such a field day battling the head space on the onsight lead. Couldn't climb through the crux but was persistent to either send or take my first fall onto placed gear.

Insight failed trying to stay last of the fifth bolt for the 24 grade. It seems someone has added a bolt just above the slab at the start so that would now make it bolt 6. Staying left seems sand bagged and i never pulled through the moves. Climbed through the 23 variant which to me seems like the obvious and better line, definitely nicer climbing.
