Johan is the stronger climber of the two of us and probably felt he waited for me part of the way. I can physically endure long, distance and hard climbs, but when the holds get too crimpy, that doesn’t help. Should have spent a few more hours with the finger board. So, I would recommend making sure both your climbing and crimp endurance is solid before attempting the climb. Having Johan to lead the two last pitches did the trick though, so bringing a strong friend also works.
I especially remember the upper pitches, which included some fun challenges. One of which was the chimney pitch that was difficult to negotiate with a pack. The open side of the crack system had an absolutely stunning view of the ocean and mountains, which was nice to look at while trying to push my backpack over my head and breathing like a horse under it. We ended up pulling up the bag with one of the ropes, hoping neither camera nor lenses were destroyed.
For the last pitch, Johan went a little too far, which meant a lot of rope drag, and just when I was on a difficult move over an exposed area, the rope got stuck out to the side of me, risking a long fall. Then it was important to take a deep breath, look for good solutions and implement them. Johan ended up extending his own position from the belay stand and loosening the rope himself. Again, remember to bring a good climbing partner on this climb.
