The description sounds like Maria.





Except that the third pitch roof of Maria is the crux and is deceptively tricky, not easy.






Nerdom is correct, of course, it's the Maria roof. And while P3 is the crux, once you figure out the sequence, it's definitely no harder than 5.6 though the roof. And I'd agree with the "best 5.6 roof" in the gunks statement.

GO




There is no EASY anything in climbing. People that use that term give away their experinece level.

Everything is EASY when you know how. Seasoned climbers do not use the easy adjective to describe things. It's all 5th class and its all hard. Why denigrate your own efforts? Don't denigrate mine.

It is also the crux of the route and most people do not do it. Great moves. Why bother with this "best" bullshit. Another tip off of non-old school mentalities ( no offense). It's all good. And it's all subjective. There is no best anything in climbing.

period.

Here's another easy one (disclaimer: when I led this, the gear was pre-placed to the crux; the leader backed off and I gave it a try; and, in the interests of full disclosure, I whipped the first time I tried to pull the crux; but I like the picture!):







Ooo, Mr Kotter, Mr Kotter! I know this one!

Retribution, yes? (Anyway, it's the one on the left, I get the names for Ret. and Nose. confused)

GO

Awkward sequence there. Why not use the good holds instead>?

Why use words like "good" holds? All there are are holds. Good is a purely subjective term - what feels good for you may be bad for me. Don't denigrate my good holds by making them feel bad.

Guess it must be No Exit then. Unusual look at it, if that is it. Good pic. Only did that one once. Tough for a ten. Actual crack moves!

WRONG.

Nice try. Bad result.

I didn't say use the BEST holds. There is good and bad in climbing, fool. This is a right way and a wrong way to do things. It is not subjective.


Anytime you want to learn some real climbing, let me know and we can go out. You might even lose that PC, n00b lingo you are infatuated with and get to do so mind blowing climbing. Don't worry, I won't hold my breath.
