EOD attempt. .. would be a classic in the Blueys. Not as much a crimpfest as the description might lead you to think. Damn, Monty, this aint no softie at the grade! Tough (and scary) all-gear start on tiny wires up a fused frictionless flake culminating in an exciting runout to the first bolt (above good gear). Then very hard and complex sequences between super-juggy holds, all the way to the top. I used a total of 4 crimpy crimps on this pitch, the rest was rad taipan-esque climbing.

very close ... I am such a 1 sit wonder. oh well, freezing rainy day and numb fingers gives me a good excuse for sucking. downgraded from "classic" to "very good" - the climbing is totally classic but the snapping edges annoyed me more this time
