5.10c Summer Breeze

(Pitch 1: see: cooked goose area)

Our local guide books say that it's either 10b with an A0 section OR 10d for the first pitch. I was able free the entire thing, super fun lower pitch, with great gear (Nuts) into bolts, and a few small supplemental cams.

There is some loose rock climbing though the fist roof, but it's easily avoided, I marked what blocks I found with an X and will remove them soon.

The upper two pitches could use a scrub, but with a little digging I found good gear through slabby terrain. Climbing through the crystal pockets was super fun, but P3 isn't much to write home about. Either way it's definitely a must do in Vic!

The local Guide book stayes that it's either 10b with an A0 section OR 10d. Either way it's a super fun lower pitch, with great gear (small Nuts) into bolts, and a few supplemental cams. I never did find the 10d moves, but did climb through the slabby A0 section. The upper two pitches could use a scrub, but with a little digging I found good gear. Climbing through the crystal pockets was super fun! Definitely a must do in Vic!

Stoked to send this classic, I think 14b is appropriate it feels as hard or harder than any other b I’ve been on, but can be very condition dependent so who knows... A rad route with the best worst tufa I’ve ever grabbed!
