Comments: when i forst climbed it 20ish years ago it was still thin but there was friction so it did feel 5.6... these days with that marble polish, yeah, its not easy to get established...

Comments: normally #2 cams are considered "hand sized" but as we know hands come in many sizes... for me this is perfect hands leading to a fist or 2 at the top... and as you say perfect feet :) an extra 20 feet of this climb would be great but i think another 500 ft would really get me going!

Comments: made good progress today which was fun... but the best part was trying out the giant swinging whipper from the upper section way left of the draw... such a cool spot to be flying around!

Comments: I am the the shortest tall climber around! or is it the tallest short climber... hmm... :)

As for Vallee Daze Vs. Orangahang... talk about an apples to oranges comparison... dont even know what to say about all that... but they are both fun climbs which is after all the important part, right ;)

Comments: oh and as for easier if tall.... no way IMO... way easier if you are STRONG... i am quite tall and this was one of the hardest 12As ive done...
i see so many gym rats (of all sizes) walk up this thing like its nothing... that's how they train, to get strong and hold on forever... same people may find a 5.10 slab impossible, style counts for a lot...

Comments: ive seen many very short climbers do this one... i know its steep and all but i found a few techy ways to make it more reasonable... i do it the way that most shorties do it... focusing on steaming the right foot out right in the crux to keep more weight on the feet...

that being said, it was much harder than most 12a routes at rumney for me... i would call it 12b for me...

Comments: most likely needs to be replaced... looks like its pulling out rather than unscrewing...

Comments: Worked this again today and i must say the climbing is SO enjoyable! I love the opening, the corner, the cruxy section to gain the 1st anchor even the little bat i found sleeping in the overhang above :)

i have yet to do the upper section due to conditions (a good layer of melting ice today) but im psyched to take a look soon :)
