5.7 Penelope's Problem

After a really cool day of bouldering, we figured there was still some room for trad left, so we headed to Swan Slab to try this good-looking line. A wide-ish laybacky crack leads to a delicate traverse into the same tree anchor of my first trad lead. Pretty enjoyable :)

5.9 Grant's Crack

Hardest trad climb yet! Was gonna try it on TR but was feeling pretty confident, even though I'd never done moves like that before (actually engaging a finger lock). It was extremely exciting and exhilirating to stick each crux. Slightly slabby twin finger cracks with a couple of delicate cruxes lead to the final part of Oak Tree Flake. As is usual with me, placed a lot of pro on this one! One of the best moments in Yosemite for sure. Happy that it came on the last day :D

Last day in Yosemite! We wanted to try Grant's Crack, so to set up a TR we went up this laybacky crack. Easy and scenic.

5.6 Swan Slab Gully

P1 of this was my first trad lead! Placed about 15 pieces of pro for 15m. All bomber if I do say so myself. Practiced it on TR placing gear once. P1 is fun, just a wide crack on a slab. For P2 you go on the left side of a groove through a crack on which Miguel used very little pro IMO, and P3 is this reversy-traversy middle-size crack on a slab, which was my first "pure" OS, where route-finding is essential. I also built my first anchor on a tree. Definitely exciting, different than sport.

Yosemite Valley North Lower Merced Canyon Knob Hill
5.7 * Sloth Wall

3rd trad lead! Miguel bailed at the delicate-foot crux (FO). On lead, I was fine until the friction slab section. Even though it was all good and easy, I had kinda run out of pro, having used it all at the bottom, which made this probably one of my most scary ascents to date. Took my time and made extra sure every hold was good. After making it to the top, Maria and Miguel followed. Maria got overtaken by a solo climber (over the rope >:( ) and Miguel dropped his ATC. Quite the experience!

5.8 ** After Seven

Lead pitches 2 and 4, retreated after P4 because darkness was coming. An excellent first pitch! Intro to finger cracks, which came quite easily, especially with my versatile Scarpa Instincts. Leading this one would've been psychological! The rest of the pitches are also psychological, but less hard. Saw a lot of solo climbers climbing past us (over us) and over the rope. Extremely irresponsibly IMO. The chimney pitch is incredibly fun! Excellent views of the valley and side of El Cap :D

Yosemite Valley Sentinel Rock Area B-1 Boulder
V6 Sentinel Traverse

An absolute king line, it only lacks a top out. Took me three days of trying- the moves came very quickly, but the link seemed impossible for me and thought it wasn't gonna go. Hardest moves are right at the start, slopey deadpoints on an overhang, followed by resistence climbing finishing with a V3/4ish boulder problem. Even though this is probably my hardest boulder ever, Human Energy took me longer, and the send was very unexpected. Didn't even get pumped. Sent a Yosemite V6- bring on V7!

An incredibly fun and uncharacteristically gymnastic boulder problem. Three finger pocket campus to the biggest jug in Yosemite, after which comes a mantle to a techy slab. Got on the send train after sending Sentinel Traverse, and was just having fun! First Yosemite V5 :D

Yosemite Valley Curry Village The Zorro Boulder
V4 Zorro

Incredible mega classic line. Tension start with a few lockoff moves leads into grabbing a good flake and crimping with the other hand to throw a huge move to a jug. All day I tried doing this move static by doing the forearm equivalent of a kneescum (ouch), until these other guys showed me how, and then it was a straightforward affair. Most exhilirating move in Yosemite this trip! Stout for the grade, as usual :D

V3 ** The Big Moe

So they told me this was V4- whatever! Incredible vertical cranking on crimps with almost imaginary feet, leading into a big move to a crimp and then a sloper into a stretchy mantle. Incredible way to end our first day in Yosemite. Also, we ran across these guys that we had also come across in Rocklands, South Africa! Found them in Camp 4 that day, almost didn't believe it! We didn't even know they would be there! Crazy stuff! :D
