LinkUP – Millenium Falcon to Bellygood / Grand Wall (5.11a)
Starting late in the day @ 10a.m. we wandered up Millenium planning to do the whole route. Still recovering from Slesse, we took our time. The plan was that I would take the first block, Jon the second. On the fourth pitch, the clouds still covering the top of the chief, and the friction excellent, he asks if I want to do the Grand Wall. I seem perplexed that we would have to strain so much on such a relaxing day. He throws in the ‘let’s end the season strong,’ and the fire in my eyes is nothing compared to my upturned GRIN. I say to Jon, “Millenium is MY BLOCK, Grand is YOUR BLOCK.” I proceed to FREE the rest of the climb. and Jon f’n Effa smooth like butter frees the rest of the G-wall without a hitch, not even Perry’s was a problem. We call er’ a day 9 hours later @ the top of G-wall as the sun sets on another ineffable day. I never thought I’d be able to climb what I climb, how I climb, which leads me to tell everyone else: You also can do it!
No Camera for the G-wall! Fast and light, doing the G- wall in less than 4 hours. Only pics of my block.
