Multipitch - follow crux pitches Great climb. I led up the sustained 5.8 handcrack first pitch. Beautiful line with perfect hands and great pro, made even better by the sun which, up to that point, had been hidden behind clouds. The rest of the route I thought was pretty chill. Fun 5.7 lb on the second pitch. I didn't think that the "committing" crux was very hard. I got great jams with both hands under the roof and was able to find enough traction to keep my feet on the wall. Great 5.8 lb after that leading up to a tricky, but fun last couple...

Multipitch - lead crux pitches Commitment-Selaginella linkup. Commitment was pretty straightforward. Jon led the first pitch, which was burly but not too difficult. 2nd pitch was pleasant 5.7 lie-backing. 3rd pitch had that memorable turning-the-roof crux. I couldn't really get good jams and ended up doing some kind of pinch on edges in the roof; both David and Jon got good jams there that made the crux fairly easy. I definitely was hanging on my jams/hands for a few moves there - first time I've really done that! Rest of pitch was fun, did the 5.9 finish which was interesting kinda-overhanging jams. Had lunch on...

Onsight Great 3-pitch trad climb with views of the valley. I setup the final anchor using three nearby trees (there was a bit of loose rock and dirt on top).
