Bill racks up to start the route. It's on the west facing wall of Muralla Grande so it was shady. And with a 30+ MPH wind all day, it was cold to start!
Bill setting off on the third pitch. We were psyched because we got into the sun on this pitch.
Following the fourth pitch. Sun and some shelter from the wind. Not much though.
Cool moves on great rock in a small dihedral at the top of the fourth pitch.
The start of the fifth pitch is a 25' traverse to the left from the belay before heading up on an airy ledge. This was fun. The pitch is rated 5.9R.
After the traverse, way airy and make-you-think face climbing with tricky pro at times.
Following the sixth pitch. This was a great 5.8+ face climbing pitch with an interesting slot section to reach the belay ledge.
In the slot section of pitch 6. One more 5.7ish pitch from here to the top and we finally got out of the wind!
Out of the wind, finally!
