Sam got up without a fall. Whether it was the polished/wet/cold rock or just being freaked out by the low crux moves with Sam belaying me, I had to hang once or twice on the way up to figure things out. At no point did I feel particularly great. Seemed like a lot of work and no joy. But people love this thing, and I'll probably come back to this at some point and climb it and wonder why I had trouble the first time.
Fast Food Christians (5.10a), on the other hand, was more fun. Interesting start followed by super easy climbing on an edgy slab. A very slightly harder version of the easy slabs at Roadside.
With cold weather, places to be and a grumpy Leo we packed it in and headed home after a week of solid climbing. Up to our 18th day and 58th route of 2017!
