5.9 Cosmic Teacup

Was surprised at how easy pulling the roof was; found the slab above a lot more challenging. Run-out from 3rd bolt to anchor; I added a (probably poor) pink tri-cam a couple meters below the anchors.

5.10a La Madrina

Thought about leading it; but decided to TR after placing a piece and then contemplating sequence to first bolt. Crux seems to be upper section, to reach anchors.

Last gear placement might be behind a detached block.

I think one hanger nut on the anchor is loose, too. Should bring wrench & tighten.

Still a bit of work, but went much more easily seconding than leading. Having seconded it, I think I should be able to lead it, though possibly not at the end of the day.

Not bad going until the crux section near the top where the crack leans a bit more to the left, and the feet on the wall below become very thin.

Looked like fun, so I hiked up to drop a TR off the big tree at the top. It ended up going easier than I expected looking at it.

With cleaning, there is a crack in the left face that might take gear; so could end up being an easy trad route.
