El Ninjo 5.12a

I was at Downunder with Amy and James yesterday after warming up at Eastern Block. I originally went there to climb "The price of business" and "Sausages" but toproped El Ninjo instead. The bottom is a overhanging jugfest up to the 3rd bolt where the climb goes into a crimpy crux. It took quite a few tries before I could dial in the crux to slow and static moves. Popping on crimps just was not going to happen for me. I will be so pumped if I can link the lower and upper sections of this climb by the end of the season. The trick, will be to save energy and rest out somewhere before the crux.
