Crescent Spire
5.10b 5.10- McTech Arete

Wow! What a fantastic route. The crux would probably get a 19 at Frog buttress back home and is super fun. The 4th pitch is no doubt the best pitch of climbing I have ever done in the mountains, twin cracks pulling a small roof into a splitter hands corner to another roof. Amazingly delightful! Stoked I got to lead both of those pitches We banged this out early as weather was predicted to come in and we figured if it held we could get another route done. Climbed in 2.5hrs however the rain started at 10:30am rather than 6pm. This is the mountians!

Brendan and I both wanted to do this because 1) It's classic and 2) we both want to bring our fiances up here to experience this. Simul-climbed the whole thing in 2 hours col to col in our mountaineering boots. Super fun and great views the whole day.

Super classic line. Done in 10hrs camp to camp with Brendan. We pitched the approach scramble in the dark as we were not sure if we were in the right place. Pitched the first 3 and then simul-climbed to the top in 2 blocks. The summit traverse is fun and exposed and the descent is nice. Such a great route and a good first one for the Bugs! Stoked

P1 Direct is a better time. P2, P4, and P5 are some of the nicest granite crack pitches I've ever done. Spectacular! Definitely botched the descent with Scott, got lost and wandered the backside of Crescent for 2 hours before getting back where we came down off the free hanging rap. Still awesome.

Little afternoon jaunt. Decided to do the full ridge from not far above the ladder, so ended up being a couple of km to the summit, starting on some pretty crumbly rock...would recommend starting in the normal place if you don't like the loose stuff!
