Pete then got on Mangled Digit E3 6a*** and cruised to the crux, but could not commit. I then led it, which seemed to give Pete the drive to send large, which he did.
|Getting involved on Exfoliation|
We moved on from the Pits and went around the corner to Pots and Pans Quarry. There are a few starred routes in the guide that look worth a visit, most notably Exfoliation E4 5c**. This follows an awesome looking groove with thin and technical moves. I jumped on this and thought it was AMAZING!!!, but quite tricky for 5c. After further reviewing the guide t turned out I had climbed the direct (obvious/common sense) finish which dumps the grade up to 6b, oops! I then went for a quick solo of Jeanette E3 5b*. Dirty damp holds to finish, a bit of a freak out for the first time in a while, and I pulled myself together to finish.
