yep. i have no idea what i actually ended up doing.. nothing felt 5.8 and it was all pretty dirty so it was hard to follow so i mostly wandered up and followed gear placements smile I have no plans to do it again. P1 is the money pitch. which i also don't plan on doing again... scary!

Wait a minute, Jake are you talking about Southern Pillar or Columbia?

It's easy to avoid getting lost on Columbia if you know what to look for-- from the tree atop the short pitch one look for the corner just to the left of the Madame G corner. People often go up the Columbia corner by mistake when they mean to do Madame G. The Columbia corner has two crucial pitons right away after the start of the pitch. This is the crux technical section. After that it's straight up, jug city, pumpy with good pro. Not really dirty until the angle eases. I think this is kind of a hidden gem.

If you were talking about Southern Pillar, I've never done that one.

I tried to make this harder, but it may still be an easy one.

We have a winner, winner, wegetable dinner.

The shitty nut placement gave it away?

Yea, the nut, that low bulge, the looming ceiling above. Even your mention of trying to make it less obvious, as in there's more to be seen i.e. the other overhangs.

Or it was a lucky guess.

Oh, never mind. I was confusing my gear placements.

The shade of that area makes it a much better warm weather climb. Good on ya to suffer!
