Another visit to The Green Room

Sunday, February 10, 2008

After a weekend off, Jim Ewing, Matt McCormick and I were back at The Green Room this past Saturday. Last time out we were unable to find a reasonable sequence for breaching the roof. It just seemed so improbable. Honestly, this weekend it did also, however, Matt sussed out a great no hands rest just after the steinpull crux sequence, which makes a significant difference in just getting to the roof. All three of us made attempts on the roof and lowered off shaking our heads. On his second go, Jim found a hand jam that totally unlocked the crux. By this time, though, we were late in the day and only had time for Matt to give 'er one more go. He confirmed the sequence, built an anchor, and lowered off. We'll be back soon to hopefully finish it. Great climbing on this one. Below are some pix. I sacrificed an attempt to get some killer shots but it was totally worth it...I think!
