A different view of Again & Again



Aside from the bush/tree in the middle of the dihedral, that looks a lot like Yum Yum Yab Yum. Does it climb like that, too?

GO

I recall linking Again and Again with Cuckoo Man and maybe something else. Midway through the traverse I pulled a nose-shaped roof that I've seen rated anywhere between 5.9-5.10b. Had I thought it would be that difficult, I would have kept traversing right on easier terrain...I just thought it was a difficult for the grade move. Damn good route though.

I don't think it's a whole lot like Yum Yum Yab Yum. The first big traverse is quite long, like 50 feet, and requires that the second is solid and you also have to traverse death ledge which is easy but loose and dangerous. The start is a little tricky but the ambiance under the huge roof is outstanding, and the big right facing corner is on gorgeous clean solid rock and it stays nice to the top.

Dave, did you do the last pitch of Cuckoo Man or did you break through the big roof on the big traverse? DW guidebook shows the last pitch of Again & Again going up Cuckoo Man's 3rd pitch, which is mid 5.10 (old school 5.9). The pitch should traverse out right to an easy escape instead of going straight up through the roofs.

Is it Madame G's or something close to it?

Not Madame G, but yes, something close.

Dude, you are good. Tell me how you knew.

Believe it or not, I remember that hold just under the roof, it's so distinct. So is it the climb that parallels Madame G's just to the right? I don't know the name.

Impressive.

But you don't get the prize unless you name the route.
