LL- i know you want onsight ascent, so don't read anymore-
For me, it is a kind of revenge. I can't do a first ascent any more. I was in...leading the easier of 4 pitch...
I trained so much, goiing climbing to north conway, sleeping little, working to make money...pushing over the limit.
I was climbing the route. My body said no!!!. My head was empty... (72 hours drive in three days, after five days in yosemite... and some climb around between thunderstorm)
Don't laught. I jug the nose. I was with a good partner and I follow him, I helped him as my hauling technique was good.
I took two years to come back to my level. This year, I feel confortable and ready. One month in the yos!!!
for hauling...I practice on the pro with 80 pounds pack. Rock in the haul bag.
