Cave Wall

Rachel, MC (a.k.a. stonecrusher) and I headed out to the north side of the Western CWM in yesterday's crazy heat. We spent most of our time on Cave Wall. I warmed up by leading Neruda and sent Security on TR. Security felt good so maybe it is time for another lead attempt. I spent the rest of my energy working on "Al on the Run 5.11c". This climb has a hard lower section followed by 5.7 climbing once you pull the roof on good holds. The crux (for me) is getting to the side pull pocket, marked with green, just below the roof and between the second and third bolt. Once I get that with my right I can pull the roof and finish. At the moment I get stuck on the two good holds, marked with red, just below the second bolt.
